Manzo Named Assistant Superintendent


Paul Manzo has been named the district’s new assistant superintendent for instruction and personnel, replacing the recently retired Alise Becker-Santa.

Manzo comes to East Islip after a distinguished 14-year career at Sachem Central School District, where he served as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, assistant superintendent for administration, and building administrator. Before Sachem, he worked as a building administrator for Hicksville Public Schools, a guidance counselor for Bay Shore Schools and a teacher in New York City public schools. He has been a member of the U.S. Army Reserve for 31 years.

After obtaining his bachelor’s degree in foreign language from LIU Post, Manzo earned his master’s degree in education from LIU Brooklyn and a professional diploma in educational leadership and administration from LIU Post.

Manzo resides in Mount Sinai with his wife Amy, also an educator, and their three sons, Paul, Kyle and Matt.

“I’m thrilled about having the opportunity to work in such a wonderful community,” said Manzo. “I look forward to collaborating with community members, staff and all stakeholders to ensure that all East Islip students receive a quality education. There are many wonderful things happening in this district and I’m excited about contributing to its success.”
