David Milz is returning to Bristol School, this time as district administrator.

Both the Salem School District, Milz’s current employer, and the Bristol School District announced the news in a pair of written statements Thursday. Milz’s resignation from Salem is effective Aug 16.

“I’m extremely excited and honored to return to Bristol School where I once served as principal,” Milz was quoted as saying in the Bristol statement, which was signed by Bristol board President Lauren Woolard. “Both the school and the community have always been an important part of my life. I look forward to working together with all stakeholders to inspire student growth, learning and success in my role as district administrator. I consider it an unbelievable opportunity to be able to serve a school that I know is filled with many amazing people, along with having such a supportive community.”

Milz served as the principal of Bristol School from 1990-2004. Milz was the district administrator of the Salem School District since 2004. He was the principal of Randall School for one year before his previous Bristol stint.

The Salem statement, signed by board President Dana Powers, said the district will seek to hire an interim administrator and then conduct a search for a permanent replacement.

“The Board’s search criteria for a candidate is someone who embodies the mission of our District; who is committed to developing and empowering leaders, and provides the type of leadership which transcends positional
presence and tenure,” the Salem statement said. “We desire an individual who cares about people, and is passionate about helping students develop personal skills, academic achievement, creativity, intellectual curiosity, and independent thinking, in order to prepare for a lifetime of productivity, accomplishment, and continued learning. We are extremely excited about the new opportunities for the Salem School District and believe this process
will be seamless due to our amazing administration team and staff.”

The Salem School Board was expecting Milz to be leaving the district, just not so soon.

In reply to an email from westofthei.com, Powers said “At July’s Board meeting we accepted (Milz’s) presented letter stating he would be retiring at the end of this upcoming school year (June of 2020.) This would have provided us with a year to locate his replacement, with his assistance in that highly involved process. The exact wording in his resignation letter read at last night’s special meeting was ‘there have been some developments since the July regular school board meeting.'”
