LYNNWOOD, Wash., February 9, 2023—The Edmonds School District Board of Directors selected Dr. Rebecca Miner as the district’s permanent superintendent, pending successful contract negotiations, during a special meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023.
Dr. Miner was selected by the School Board last spring to be the interim superintendent for the 2022-23 school year.
“The Board feels strongly Dr. Miner is the right fit to guide our district through our strategic plan,” said School Board President Dr. Nancy Katims. “Throughout the superintendent search process, we have listened to our community and they have expressed a high degree of confidence in Dr. Miner and her leadership.”
Dr. Miner was one of two finalists along with Dr. Concie Pedroza who is the Associate Superintendent for the Seattle Public Schools. Each candidate spent the last two days meeting with students, families, staff and community members.
The school board would like to thank everyone who participated in the process of selecting our new superintendent over the past several months.
