Academic demands will be causing a bit of a shift in the work load for two Medina Central administrators, Medina High Principal Mark Kruzynski and Athletic Director and Wise Middle School Assistant Principal Chris Hughes, as of January 1.

Kruzynski will be adding the responsibilities of athletic director while Hughes will remain as Wise Middle School assistant principal and head of the district’s Physical Education Department.

The increased academic demands on staff due to the state’s listing of Wise Middle as a Focus School is cited as a primary reason for the shifting of duties.

“Academics is our primary concern and since the middle school is a Focus School this year Chris is needed in that area,” Kruzynski said. “And that is a very time consuming effort so this is really a balancing of work loads.”

Adding the role of athletic director is not a new one for Kruzynski who previously served in that position for several years before becoming high school principal.
