White Pass Schools Chief Offered Top Job in Shoreline


Rebecca Miner, the superintendent of schools in the White Pass School District, is expected to accept a new job in the Shoreline School District just north of Seattle.

Shoreline Public Schools has announced their board of directors voted unanimously March 29 to name Miner as their superintendent. She would start July 1 after successful contract negotiations, the district’s website states.

White Pass school officials said Thursday that Miner has not tendered a resignation at the local level; she is currently out of the area and is expected to return April 14.

However, Miner is quoted on the Shoreline Public Schools website as saying she was “honored to have the privilege to be joining the Shoreline School District.”

Miner is in her third year of service as superintendent in the East Lewis County school district that is home to 410 students. She was hired in 2011 to replace outgoing administrator Bill Evans.

Miner originally came to White Pass from Washougal, just east of Vancouver, Wash., where she served as assistant school superintendent for four years.
