Director - District 5

Mr. Marc RossonRosson

This is my first year as a school board director for the Arlington Public Schools. I am looking forward to working with our community to understand the decisions and work we have ahead of us and to fully support our students and staff. I believe that our schools are most successful when there is a strong partnership between the community and schools. Whether you have children in the district or not, we all benefit when our schools are thriving. Please join me at a school board meeting or read the minutes posted online. Get involved by volunteering in a classroom, a school event, or join one of our fabulous PTAs. We’re all busy but we all can find a way to get involved and be engaged in our schools.

I grew up in Mount Vernon, WA but have fond childhood memories of Arlington as both my grandparents and aunt had a home here. I’ve had the pleasure of calling Arlington home since 1998 when my wife began her teaching career at Kent Prairie Elementary. She moved to Pioneer Elementary when it first opened and both our children attended school there as well. Our children, Luke (class of 2019) and Kate (class of 2021), are currently students at Arlington High School.

I’ve worked in the public sector for the past 20 years, leading information technology departments and long-range planning efforts. I have a Master in Business Administration from Seattle University and currently work as the Enterprise Architect for the Snohomish County PUD. In my spare time, I’m active as the Treasurer for the AHS Booster Club, a supporter of the AHS drama and music programs, and coach my son’s Arlington Boys and Girls Club basketball team.
