About the district
Marysville outperforms state averages for median income and poverty rate while lagging behind in higher education achievement. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (17.6%) is ahead of the state average (31.4%). The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Marysville's median income at $65,736 while the state median income was $58,890. Marysville had a poverty rate of 11.6% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 12.5%.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
The current Superintendent of Marysville School District is Becky Berg. She has served in the position since July 2013 and previously served as the Superintendent of Deer Park School District.
The Marysville Board of Directors is a five-member board with each member elected by district to a four-year term. Each member can be compensated $50 per day for district matters with a maximum compensation of $4,800 per year.
School board elections
Members of the Marysville Board of Directors are elected to four-year terms on a staggered basis. Two seats on the board were up for election on November 5, 2013 and three seats will be on the ballot on November 3, 2015.

The Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction published a state report card for 2011-2012 assessing subject proficiency levels and year-to-year progress for each district. This report card relies on data from the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) and High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) to determine if each district meets Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) goals in reading and math. The goal for each district is to meet proficiency goals at all grade levels and student demographics by the 2013-2014 school year.
Marysville School District met the state goal of 95% participation across all grade levels. The district did not meet AYP goals for reading or mathematics at the elementary and middle school levels. The Washington State Report Card also concluded that the district's high schools failed to meet AYP goals for mathematics.
