Milton Schools administrator resigns
Krista Jones has announced her resignation, sources said.
Jones, who has worked in the Milton School District since 2008, is leaving to take a position at the Cambridge School District starting next school year.
At Milton, Jones has been in charge of special education staffing, planning and budgeting and has had a leading role in academic and behavior improvement programs including Response to Intervention.
Jones has accepted a position at Cambridge with similar responsibilities, sources said.
Milton School District Superintendent Mike Garrow confirmed Jones’ move, although he said he would not discuss the specifics of it pending the school board approving Jones’ resignation and the Cambridge School Board approving her hire.
Garrow said Jones is leaving the district on good terms and that she announced her decision to staff last week.
“She has done a wonderful job, and we’ll miss her a lot,” Garrow said.
He said Jones has indicated the move is a “positive” for her.
“You don’t stop people from trying to achieve their goals and what’s best for them in the long term,” Garrow said.
The district has already posted the vacancy and will be seeking applicants, Garrow said.
Cambridge Schools Superintendent Bernie Nikolay confirmed in a telephone message to The Gazette that Cambridge Schools has offered Jones a job. He said the school board will likely vote on Jones’ hiring at a meeting April 23.
Nikolay, a former Milton superintendent, worked alongside Jones at Milton until he left the district in 2011 to become Cambridge superintendent.
