Everett veteran to become SKSD’s assistant superintendent

Jennifer Farmer succeeds Tracy Patterson as head of Business Services.

PORT ORCHARD — Jennifer Farmer is the new assistant superintendent of Business Services for the South Kitsap School District.

Karst Brandsma, South Kitsap’s superintendent, announced Farmer’s appointment on July 3.

Farmer, who was director of Business Services for 16 years for Everett Public Schools, replaces Tracy Patterson in the post. Patterson left South Kitsap to become the chief financial officer for the Northshore School District.

Prior to her tenure in Everett, Farmer served in a similar capacity with the Shoreline School District. She has served on the board of directors of the Washington Association of School Business Officials, serving as president of the organization during the 2015-2016 school year.

Farmer graduated with a bachelor of arts in Humanities and Business from Seattle University and is a graduate of the Matteo Ricci College from S.U.

“I am tremendously excited to join the talented and devoted educators of South Kitsap to support our students in reaching their goals,” Farmer said in a news release. “I look forward to being of service to this community.”

Farmer is expected to begin her duties at the school district on July 23.
