Lomira Names New District Administrator

The Lomira School Board has officially offered the position of District Administrator to Ty Breitlow.

The School Board had narrowed the choices for the position down to three, and had held final interviews with the trio last week.

An email was sent Tuesday (2/22/2022)to families in the district which reads:

“Dear School District of Lomira Families and Staff, The Lomira Board of Education is pleased to announce it has offered the position of District Administrator to Ty Breitlow, current District Administrator for the Randolph School District and 2019 Wisconsin Principal of the Year. 

The Board plans to vote on the hiring at its March 9 meeting. If approved, Breitlow would start effective July 1, when Bob Lloyd retires after nine years as District Administrator and Middle School Principal and 20 years with the district.”

Breitlow said he was “humbled and honored” to join the School District of Lomira. 

“This is a proud district with a noteworthy tradition of academic, artistic, athletic, business and agricultural excellence,” he said. “I look forward to moving into the district and becoming an active member of the community, building relationships, and partnerships that will continue to support and enhance outstanding opportunities for students.” 

The email from Board President Rick Welak continued, “From an outstanding field of candidates, Breitlow stood out for his proven ability to build relationships and innovate in the interest of students and staff. We are excited to have him join our community and look forward to great opportunities to come. 

Breitlow has served as District Administrator for the Randolph School District since 2019. He previously served as Director of Learning and Principal of Chilton High School for seven years. Before that, he was Dean of Students at Arrowhead Union High School and taught social studies at Arrowhead and West Allis Central High School. He also coached football and track and field. 

He has served on the Board of Directors for the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA), the WIAAAdvisory Council and the WI ACT State Council, as well as as President of the Randolph Chamber of Commerce.

Breitlow earned his Bachelor of Science in Education from Winona State University and Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Marian University where he also completed the superintendent’s licensure program. In both Chilton and Randolph, Breitlow helped build professional learning communities among staff and increased student learning opportunities in Advanced Placement courses, Career and Technical Education (CTE) and dual enrollment with area technical colleges. 

Randolph Elementary Principal and Special Education Director Christy Fay said in a letter to the Board that Breitlow “exemplifies trust, support, honesty and integrity with a sense of humor that brings levity to even the most stressful interactions. He leads with his heart always keeping the needs of the people he serves at the forefront of his decisions.”

The Board on Feb. 16 reviewed finalists who were recruited and screened by a team at Cooperative Educational Service Agency (CESA) 6 that was hired to lead the board through the search process.
