WALL TO WALL academy concept to bolster district's offerings












TAYLOR HIGH SCHOOL open house is September 14


Taylor High School will have its open house from 5:30 until 6:45 p.m. on Friday, September 14.


The later date allows for those students who are still dropping and adding a few electives to have been finalized, which will make the open house experience more meaningful for parents and students alike.

RANDALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL parent club gets off to flying start


The Randall Elementary School Parent Club got off to a great start, creating a supply cake to be given to one of the awesome teachers.

All the parents and staff had to do was to like and comment on a post from the new Randall Parent Club Facebook page.


The drawing was done on September 6 and the winner of this outstanding “cake” was Mrs. Stacy Burns, the first-second grade teacher.

MESSAGE FROM Supt. Ben Williams

Dear Taylor School District Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

I hope this letter finds you well.  The faculty and staff of the Taylor School District are so excited to welcome you back. This summer was extremely busy and we have made significant investments in instructional technology with the addition of over 2,000 Chromebooks and iPads, and the installation of Clevertouch smart boards in our classrooms. 

We have added STEM technologies at all levels with the addition of virtual reality headsets, and technology integrated lessons taught in lab environments with an emphasis on experimentation and learner focused inquiry. In addition, prepared for the opening of Taylor High School by expanding the number of elective courses, added football and wrestling at the middle school to help build the athletic feeder program, and have also added competitive cheer at the High School.

In addition to the above, we have installed all new air conditioning in Taylor High School, replaced windows at a few of our elementary schools, and made upgrades to heating and cooling systems in other buildings. 

These are just some more examples of how the Taylor School District is using the bond funds that the Taylor voters approved two years ago. On behalf of the students and staff of the Taylor School District, thank you again for supporting these important improvements!

The district administration is also working with the City of Taylor, SEMCA and Ford NGL to continue building our network of business and industry partners as we open Taylor High School in four district career pathway academies.  By creating multiple curricular pathways within the one high school, the Taylor School District will be elevating our high school above that of our neighboring districts by providing greatly expanded foundational career and college ready opportunities for all of our students.

Welcome back to all of our returning students and a warm welcome to our new students and families.  I wish everyone an amazing year and my team and we are committed to doing the very best we can to make that happen.  Please don’t hesitate to call me with any questions you might have.

Sincerely,
Ben Williams    
Superintendent, Taylor School District
