Edmonds Deputy Superintendent takes job with Shoreline School District

Marla Miller

Marla Miller has been appointed as deputy superintendent of the Shoreline School District, Superintendent Sue Walker announced. Her appointment is effective July 1 and was approved by the Shoreline School Board at its April 16 meeting, according to our friends at Shoreline Area News.

Miller has been employed by the Edmonds School District since 1993, and has served as its executive director of business and operations since 1998. Her responsibilities include oversight of business and finance, capital projects, food service, technology/print shop and facilities operations.
“We are excited about welcoming Marla Miller to our Shoreline team,” Superintendent Walker said. “She brings a wealth of experience in Washington state school finance and her breadth of knowledge in capital projects will be essential as we continue construction of the new Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools.”

Miller will succeed Marcia Harris, who announced in March her plans to retire August 31 after six years as Shoreline’s deputy superintendent and 37 years overall in public education.

Miller first joined Edmonds as a human resources consultant, then became human resources manager and director of business services, payroll and benefits before assuming her current position. She is a graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. She is active in the community as a member and past president of the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Club, as a board member of the Edmonds Public Facilities District, on the Dale Turner Family YMCA Strategic Planning Committee, and as past president and lifetime member of the Seattle Milk Fund.
Miller and her husband live in Edmonds and are the parents of three children.
  1. Marla is very definitely a hugh loss for the ESD and its citizens. I’ve had considerable interaction with Marla over the past 8 or 9 years; she has always responded to questions promptly and thoroughly with understandable answers. She is leaving really “big shoes to fill”!

  2. Those really big shoes are clown shoes.

    It is a great day for our community. Our district can grow in the direction it has needed to for nearly ten years.
