Five months after being placed on administrative leave, short-lived Wantagh Superintendent Phil D'Angelo is no longer employed by the school district.
Michael Cucci, president of the Wantagh school board, announced Thursday night that the district has accepted D'Angelo's resignation. D'Angelo was placed on leave by the Wantagh Board of Education on Sept. 14, less than three months into his role as superintendent. He landed a new superintendent job with the Millbrook Central School District in Westchester County that began on Jan. 1.

"Mr. D'Angelo is no longer an employee of the Wantagh School District," said Cucci in a statement during Thursday night's board of education meeting. "The board will now engage the process of discussing the appointment of a new superintendent of schools."
Cucci said for legal reasons he could not disclose whether D'Angelo was still receiving compensation from the district. At the Dec. 13 school board meeting, Cucci said the district was continuing to pay D'Angelo's salary on top of Acting Superintendent Maureen Goldberg. At last month's board meeting, Cucci assured the community that both parties were working with their attorneys to sever the contractual relationship.
