The Commack Board of Education

Board of Education Goals 2021-2022

Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment:

  • Continue to support the development and ongoing enhancement of a well-balanced, developmentally appropriate curriculum that allows all students to be prepared to accomplish their individual goals.
  • Cultivate an atmosphere of informed cultural awareness and inclusivity which seeks to create an environment wherein all students feel valued, and value those around them.
  • Continue to support the professional growth of educators and leaders, with a renewed focus on cultural awareness and instructional flexibility, while further enhancing pedagogical skills based on teacher strengths. 

Social and Emotional Well-Being

  • Continue to provide for an education in which all students can learn the social, emotional, academic, and physical competencies in an environment that is as safe and healthy as possible. 
  • Provide for an enhanced social and emotional program during the “Return to School” to meet the needs of students.
  • Continue to support the professional development of staff regarding social and emotional programs to cultivate a healthy and safe school culture and climate.


  • Support the in-depth review of the district’s external and internal communications, in all its modalities, to result in enhanced two-way (to-District and from-District) communication with all stakeholders (e.g. students, parents, staff, community-at-large).
  • Continue to engage Board of Education-level committees on various topics with clear objectives, values, and goals.
  • Continue with tried-and-true community outreach efforts to garner the voice of the Commack community, inclusive of students, parents, staff, community-at-large.
  • Continue the District’s work towards advocacy to further the voice of the school community with our elected officials.

District Business and Operations:

  • Maintain the health and safety of students and staff during the “return to school,” as defined by DOH, CDC and other governing authorities, as appropriate. 
  • Continue to support the district’s multi-year plan for the maintenance and the improvement of District facilities in order to provide students and staff with a healthy and safe learning and working environment. 
  • Continue to develop a fiscally conservative budget that helps maintain the integrity of Commack’s programs and aligns with the community’s expectations.
