Dr. Art Jarvis
At their regular meeting held on July 26, 2018, the Peninsula School District Board of Directors selected Dr. Art Jarvis to be the Interim Superintendent for the 2018-2019 school year.
The leadership position was left vacant as of July 1, 2018 after Dr. Rob Manahan resigned to take the Superintendent position in the Snoqualmie Valley School District. Karen Andersen, Chief Financial Officer, had been chosen by the Board to be acting Superintendent until an interim was chosen.
After earning his BA in Education, MA in Special Education, and Ed.D in Educational Administration from the University of Washington, Dr. Jarvis has served as Superintendent in Tacoma, Enumclaw, and South Whidbey School Districts. Most recently, he has been the Interim Superintendent in the Shelton School District and Renton School District. He has twice been named the Washington State Superintendent of the Year.
In his spare time, Dr. Jarvis enjoys reading, athletics, numismatics, golf, and time with family and grandchildren.
Dr. Jarvis is excited to work with the Peninsula School District team during the 2018-2019 school year.
