    Denise Juneau Approved as Next Seattle Public Schools Superintendent

    At the April 25 regular school board meeting, the board voted unanimously to approve the contract with Denise Juneau to become the next superintendent, her start date is July 1, 2018.

    Dr. Nyland and Ms. Juneau will work together to ensure a smooth transition. The Board is excited to build on the great work happening for many of our students in Seattle Public Schools. Ms. Juneau previously led the Office of Public Instruction in Montana for eight years, and has committed her adult life to ensuring young people have access to quality education. She plans to listen and learn from many different voices and build upon the great work already taking place in classrooms across the district.

    Thank you to everyone who took time to provide valuable input during the process. The top candidates were interviewed by the board, labor representatives and the leadership team. The three finalists visited the district for a day and the board conducted a final interview following their visits. At the April 4 regular board meeting, Ms. Juneau was announced as the preferred candidate.
