Bristol Schol Board announces three finalists for district administrator

The Bristol School Board has narrowed its search for a new district administrator to three candidates.

The board met in a special meeting March 12 to interview candidates.

The new district administrator will replace Gayle Ryczek, who is retiring this summer after 29 years in the position.

The following three people, all currently working in Wisconsin, were selected for final interviews, a district media release said:

  • Heather Grindatti, currently serving as principal of both Hartland North Elementary School and the Hartland Fine Arts Leadership Academy in the Hartland Lakeside School District.
  • Michael Juech, currently serving as director of teaching and learning for the Wilmot Union High School District.
  •  Milton Thompson, currently serving as interim superintendent for the Clinton Community School District.

The board expects to conduct the next round of interviews next week, the media release said. Numerous stakeholder groups will have opportunity to meet the final candidates and submit input to the board about each of them. The board intends to make its selection by the time families and staff return from Spring Break on April 4.

From the media release on the finalists:

Bristol School District #1 retained the services of McPherson & Jacobson, L.L.C. to assist in conducting this search. The consultants reviewed, screened, and conducted extensive background checks on 16 applicants. On March 9, the consultants presented the applicants to the Board of Education and provided them detailed background information on each applicant. The school board subsequently selected 5 semi-finalist candidates to interview on March 12, which informed the board decision about which three individuals would be invited back for finalist interviews. After the district administrator has been hired, one of the McPherson and Jacobson consultants will schedule and facilitate a school board/district administrator workshop to assist in the establishment of performance objectives for the incoming district administrator.
