District begins discussion of shared girls soccer team with Lyndonville

MEDINA – The Board of Education on Tuesday hired Bill Lang, a retired school administrator for Pembroke, to serve as Medina’s director of finance for Medina until a permanent hire is in place.

Medina has been without a full-time business administrator since Jan. 16. That day Mark Kruzynski started as district superintendent. He was working as the school district’s director of finance.

Medina has advertised for the position, and Kruzynski said today he expects a hire to be made in mid-April.

The district needs a full-time professional in the role the next 10 weeks or so, as Medina works on its school budget, a $34 million capital project and the day to day operations, Kruzynski said.

The Board of Education during a workshop meeting on Tuesday also discussed ongoing shared services with Lyndonville for extracurricular programs, including athletics.

Medina is interested in looking at sharing a girls soccer team. Medina offers girls soccer, field hockey, cross country and volleyball in the fall.

“There’s only so many girls to pull from,” Kruzynski said.

The district superintendent said a shared girls soccer team is just in the preliminary stages, and may not become a reality this fall.

The district wants to continue shared programs with Lyndonville with Medina students playing on Lyndonville’s Varsity and JV Boys Volleyball and Lyndonville’s drama program. Lyndonville students are also welcome to continue with Medina’s Varsity and JV Football, Varsity and JV Cross Country and the Marching Band.
