Valley Stream Central High School Assistant Principal Robert Milani was honored by the Council of Administrators and Supervisors with a 2016 CAS Administrator of the Year Award. He is one of several CAS members who received this distinction at the professional organization’s annual winter Delegate Assembly, held on Feb. 25 at the Holiday Inn in Plainview. 

The CAS consists of over 1400 public school administrators in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and presents the Administrator of the Year Awards to those who exemplify the highest qualities of school administrative leadership including achievement, vision, innovation and collaboration with parents, students, staff and administrators.

Among Mr. Milani’s many responsibilities are overseeing the guidance department, serving as a staff developer, creating master schedules, leading the AP program and scheduling AP testing, and organizing a number of school wide events. He has mentored other staff members and new administrators.

Central High School Principal Dr. Joseph Pompilio nominated Mr. Milani for this acknowledgment.

“Everything he does is completed with precision and competence,” Dr. Pompilio wrote in his nomination letter. “He is an ardent supporter of student opportunities. Every task he addresses from instruction to maintenance comes with the criterion ‘What is best for students?’ His organizational skills are impeccable, but more importantly, his positive impact on the staff and students in this building is inspiring.” 

An educator for more than two decades, Mr. Milani is in his 10th year as Assistant Principal at Central, prior to which he was the school’s math chairperson. Earlier in his career, he taught math in the Bronx and at Elmont High School.  Mr. Milani served as the Valley Stream Central High School District’s Summer School Principal in 2012 and 2013, a role he will resume this summer.

Mr. Milani holds a Bachelors Degree from St. John’s University and a Masters Degree from Queens College.
