Madison-Plains Local Schools has two new assistant principals. The school board approved the hires on June 18.
Jake LeGros is the new assistant principal at the elementary and intermediate schools (grades K-6). Brock Wysong is the new assistant principal at the junior high and high school (grades 7-12).
LeGros comes to Madison-Plains from Olentangy Local Schools where he taught fifth grade for the past nine years. He previously worked as an intervention specialist for elementary students at New Albany-Plain Local Schools. LeGros has a master’s degree from Concordia University in Chicago in school leadership and a master’s degree in educational technology from National University in San Diego. His undergraduate degree is from The Ohio State University, where he majored in special education. He also did coursework at Capital University where he earned certification as a general education teacher.
“I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to be the assistant principal and cannot wait to work in a new building with supportive faculty and staff, engaged students and a wonderful community,” LeGros said.
He knows the district’s motto, “MP Strong,” and stated, “I hope to make it even stronger.”
LeGros replaces Max Lallathin who left the district to become a principal in Canal Winchester Local Schools.
Wysong has been a classroom teacher at Dublin Coffman High School since 2013. With an undergraduate degree in education and licensure in science, he has taught physics, Advanced Placement Physics 1, and chemistry. He also has served as a junior varsity golf coach and student council advisor.
Wysong earned his master’s degree from Miami University (Ohio) in the area of professional administration.
“I am excited to start a new chapter in my career, and I am happy to do that at Madison-Plains and work with the students and families there,” he said.
Wysong replaces and will work alongside Ann Boerger who has moved into the principal’s role at the junior high and high school.
The district’s next regularly scheduled board meeting is set for July 23 in the board meeting room at the elementary school.
The board will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. July 9 to interview candidates for the open school board position. They plan to appoint the new school board member following the interviews.
