Bristol School District taps Wilmot UHS’ Juech for new district administrator

The new Bristol School district administrator won’t have to change his commute to work too much. He currently works at Wilmot Union High School.

The district announced Monday that Michael Juech will be the new district administrator in Bristol. Currently, he is director of teaching and learning at Wilmot.

The other two finalists for the job were from out of the county school districts.

From the district’s announcement:

Bristol School District #1 is pleased to announce that a contract for District Administrator has been offered to Mr. Michael Juech. Mr. Juech currently serves as the Director of Teaching and Learning at the Wilmot Union High School District, a position he has held since 2013. “It is an exciting time to be joining the Bristol School community,” Mr. Juech stated. “Bristol is known for a high-quality education, and I look forward to leading the district in continuing this tradition.” Sixteen candidates completed an application for Bristol’s District Administrator position. The School Board first interviewed five of these applicants as semifinalists on March 12, narrowing the field to three finalist candidates, who were each interviewed separately by a host of stakeholder groups and the school board during the week of March 21. Mr. Juech will assume the duties of District Administrator for Bristol on July 1. McPherson & Jacobson L.L.C. served as consultants in the search process and will continue working with the Bristol Board of Education and the new District Administrator in helping establish performance objectives for Mr. Juech as he transitions into the new role.

Gale Ryzcek, who has been the Bristol district administrator for 29 years, is retiring this summer.
