MEDINA – Mark Kruzynski, the high school principal the past five years, will be leaving that job next month to work as the school district’s director of finance.

Michael Cavanagh, the high school co-principal, will become the head principal and Medina will hire a new assistant principal.

Kruzynski, in addition to being principal, also has been serving as athletic director. The Board of Education tonight appointed Eric Valley, an art teacher and the head football coach, to be the new athletic director, beginning July 1.

Kruzynski will assist with athletic director and principal duties during a transition until the end of the school year.

David Boyle, the interim business administrator, also is expected to stay on as Kruzynski settles into the business manager position.

“There will be a fluid transition,” Kruzynski said about the changes.

He started with the district as a social studies teacher 17 years ago and moved to administration in 2006, working as assistant principal and athletic director.

Kruzynski has a certificate of advanced study in school finance and human resources. He will succeed Sharon Zacher, who took a job earlier this school year as assistant superintendent for business at Holley Central School.
