Interim Executive Director Appointed

Nicholas J. Amato JrAs you may recall, the Board of Education approved the reconfiguration of the central office administration and instructional support team during the budget-development process.  This was done in an effort to lend additional support to all curricular areas in the District.  As we search for an appropriate candidate for the position of Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction created when we eliminated the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction position, we felt it appropriate to hire an interim who will fulfill the duties associated with that position.  In that regard, the Commack School District welcomes Nicholas Amato, Jr., as the Interim Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction.

Mr. Amato will support the work of the Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Support Services team.  Scheduling, home instruction, compliance issues and professional development protocols are some of the areas to which Mr. Amato will lend his expertise.  Mr. Amato began his career as a teacher, and he has served as a consultant to more than fifteen school districts and universities across Long Island. He has coordinated career/vocational and special education programs, and developed college admissions programs for high schools and colleges. His expertise and in-depth experience in program oversight, college admissions, and supervision enhances Commack’s already outstanding administrative team. 


Mr. Amato is a graduate of the State University of New York at Buffalo, and earned his Masters and Professional Degrees from C.W. Post College of Long Island University. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Performance in Educational Administration and Leadership, and served as the President of the Suffolk County Guidance Directors Association.

“Commack will reap the benefits of Mr. Amato’s many years of educational involvement,” said Dr. Donald James, Superintendent of Commack Schools. “We are very happy to have Nick back with us, and anticipate his contributions will help lead to even greater success for our students and staff.”
