SEATTLE (AP) - Leaders of Seattle schools have postponed a vote on whether to appoint interim schools chief Larry Nyland as superintendent to allow more time for public comment.

The Seattle Times reports (https://is.gd/TdiV2k ) that the Seattle School Board had been scheduled to vote Wednesday on whether to give the job to Nyland but some parents and others criticized the timing.

Nyland led the Marysville School District from 2004 until his retirement last year. He became interim superintendent in Seattle four months ago after Jose Banda left to run the school district in Sacramento, California. Banda had been Seattle superintendent since 2012.

A school district statement issued Monday evening says the board now plans to discuss the question at Wednesday’s meeting and vote at a special meeting Dec. 10.
