• Nassau ֱ is led by a district superintendent who, in addition to responsibilities as the agency's chief executive, acts as a regional representative for the New York State commissioner of education. The district superintendent is supported by a deputy superintendent and two associate superintendents, each of whom is responsible for supervising a division of Nassau ֱ. Together, they meet regularly to discuss agency-wide issues, set programmatic and operational direction, and ensure the high quality of services and programs.
