Monroe Schools chief
leaving in June
MONROE — School superintendent Fredrika Smith announced in late December that she would be moving on to a new role July 1.
She has taken a position with the Northwest Educational Services District, where she will serve as Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning. She finishes out the school year in Monroe, with plans to transition to her new role this summer.
Smith became superintendent for Monroe Schools five years ago, after serving as Chief Academic Officer in Puyallup.
Her career started as a special education teacher in Marysville, and she also held educational leadership positions in the Stanwood-Camano, Meridian and Mukilteo school districts.
“I am exceptionally proud of the work that has been done by our team of passionate educators” in Monroe, she said. “It has been a privilege to serve alongside amazing educators and support staff and to live and work in a community that is so supportive of its schools. I am so proud of the work we have accomplished together and the work we have underway.”
Smith is a graduate of Lynnwood High School, and earned her doctorate at the University of Washington, graduating in 2012.
The school board will be announcing the next steps in the search for her replacement.
