Bristol School Board names new principal and business manager


Two new members of the Bristol School administrative team were announced this week.

Nick Schultek was selected as principal, effective July 1.

Schultek is currently serving as an at-risk coordinator and teacher at Cundahy High School.

He has a master’s degree in educational administration from Concordia University.

“With over eight years of administrative experience in many different school districts, we are excited about the knowledge he will bring when he joins our leadership team,” Administrator Michael Juech wrote to parents in a press release.

Schultek will replace former principal Jeff Terry, who left after a leave of absence earlier this year.

Tom Whitford has been serving as interim principal since early January.

The Board of Education also hired Heather Kraeuter to serve as business manager.

Kraeuter, a certified public accountant, is the former budgets and grants director and data specialist for accountability, assessment and efficiency for the Racine Unified School District.

Kraeuter has also held positions with a public accounting firm and as the accounting and payroll manager and internal controls analyst for the Kenosha Unified School District.

“(Kraeuter) will bring with her nearly 20 years of experience in financial consulting, auditing, accounting and software implementation,” Juech announced.

She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Kraeuter will replace Judy Dabbs, who is retiring.

The new hires were unanimously approved earlier this week by the Board of Education prior to newly elected officials being sworn into office.

At the meeting, residents urged the board to allow the newly seated board to choose the new administrators.

On April 2, three new board members and one incumbent were elected to five-member board.

The new members are Lauren Woolard, Stephanie Butehoff and Sue Kratowicz. The incumbent who was re-elected is Justin Miller. He was appointed to the board last fall.

Board members defended their decision to make the selection given the lengthy process and the strong qualifications of the selected candidates.
