How to address resignation

Hello. I am not happy in my current district and had a few interviews. I didn't get a direct offer until Friday. I've already written a letter of resignation (wishful thinking ) but I know due it being so close to the end of the year, they'll probably know why I'm leaving. I don't wish to address I'm leaving for another job. I just want to be vague (which is easy in letter form). However, what do I do if I'm asked directly? The school I'm at now is very gossipy and unprofessional. I know I will be asked even though they don't have a right to. Since I'm leaving anyway, should I be curt in my response? I was thinking of saying "I don't have to explain further". Does that sound rude? What would you say? Yes, I've addressed the issues (of unprofessionalism and gossip) that I have caused me to leave in the past, but the admin doesn't care and frankly encourages it in favored employees. I don't really feel like going through the hassle when I know it won't be changed/addressed.

For personal reasons.

I think that's all you need to say. It would be very rude of anyone to press further.

If they do, ' as I said, I'm leaving for personal reasons. I'd prefer not to discuss it any more.'

It's quite true - your personal decision because of your personal experiences.

I agree with esl's comment: "I'm leaving for personal reasons." This sounds better than "I don't have to explain further". (Just my opinion)

Since it is close to the end of school could you wait until school is over to inform your present district?
