The Board of Education and Central Administration announced the tenure of 10 faculty members, marking the most important milestone of their educational careers. Although the district was unable to hold a customary reception due to school district closings, the sentiment still resonated throughout the district.
Superintendent of Schools John McNamara explained that while evaluating the tenure recipients in their classrooms, he observed faculty that embraced the Wantagh school community, encouraged students to take risks in their learning and paid meticulous attention to the individual needs of students.
“These individuals have met and exceeded the district’s highest expectations,” Mr. McNamara said.
The district congratulates the following individuals:
