    Dear Massapequa School Community,

    As we promised our community in June when we adopted a resolution in accordance with the New York State Education Department’s directive regarding prohibitive mascots and imagery, it was our intention to retain the right to challenge the decision through litigation. Through the official filing of our lawsuit, we have kept that promise.

    It is our hope that we can share the true Massapequa story. The Chief is more than a logo to our schools and community. It is our history and our heritage. When we speak of the Massapequa “Chief,” we do so with pride and respect. As a Board, we are united in our efforts to stand up for our community and years of tradition. We thank the Massapequa community for their support as we navigate this process.

    As we say in Massapequa, “Once a Chief, Always a Chief.”

    The Massapequa Board of Education

The Board of Education

  • The Board of Education consists of five members, each elected by the registered voters of the Massapequa Union Free School District, Town of Oyster Bay, for three-year terms, serving without pay. The Board, representing the residents of the District, is the legislative and policy-making body responsible for all regulations governing public education within District schools. The Board of Education delegates the overall management of these policies to the Superintendent of Schools as its Chief Executive Officer. The Superintendent may, in turn, further delegate authority to the administrative staff, to faculty members, and to students.


  • The Board of Education generally holds two business meetings per month, normally scheduled on the first and third Thursday of each month in the Board Room, Administrative Wing of Massapequa High School, except as noted on the calendar. Meetings are called to order at 7:00 PM, at which time the Board enters executive session for the purpose of discussing specific personnel, negotiations and/or contractual items. The public session begins at approximately 8:00 PM. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend and participate in all regular meetings of the Board of Education. Residents’ input and questions will be addressed within reasonable time frames and procedures as set by the Board of Education.



  • Available to the public, advanced copies of BOE meeting agendas that also include changes in the date, time, and/or location of Board meetings. Copies can also be obtained by contacting the Superintendent’s Office at (516) 308-5002 the Monday preceding a meeting.



  • The Massapequa Board of Education cordially extends an invitation to all community members who would like to serve on the Board's advisory committees. The Board has established standing advisory committees for Buildings and Grounds and Budget/Finance. These committees provide valuable information and guidance to the Board which assists in goal setting and planning. If you would like to serve on one of these committees or would like further information, please contact the District Clerk, Anne Marie Bellizzi at (516)308-5001.
