The Three Village Central School District Board of Education appointed Dr. Deana Rinaldi, the current principal of Setauket Elementary School, as the district’s new director of curriculum and instruction. Prior to serving as principal, Dr. Rinaldi was the district’s director of elementary curriculum. This new title encompasses her former role, while now extending the range of her responsibilities to the secondary level.

The reinstatement of Dr. Rinaldi’s position is highly necessary due to the many initiatives within the Office of Educational Services and mandates from the New York State Education Department. Due to administrative restructuring, this position will not increase the number of administrators within the district.

As director of elementary curriculum and instruction, Dr. Rinaldi ensured all subjects in the curriculum aligned with New York State standards. Additionally, she provided training to teachers, reading specialists and math academic intervention services providers.

Dr. Rinaldi started in Three Village in 2019 as assistant principal of Setauket Elementary School. Prior, she worked as an assistant principal and special education teacher in the New York City Department of Education system. She received her bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s College, her master’s degree from Long Island University and her doctorate in education from Dowling College. Furthermore, Dr. Rinaldi has certifications in school district and building leadership from the College of St. Rose.

“I am beyond thrilled and honored to step into the role of director of curriculum and instruction for the Three Village Central School District,” Dr. Rinaldi said. “It is an exciting opportunity to assist in shaping the educational journey of our students and collaborate with dedicated educators to enhance our curriculum.”

Dr. Rinaldi’s appointment is effective July 1.
