Board of Education

Taft School District is governed by a seven member Board of Education. The Taft Board meets once a month to consider items of business and all general items relating to the functioning of the school district.  Specific concerns should be first directed to the staff member, then the building Assistant Principal, followed by the Superintendent, and finally the Board of Education.  The Board honors the chain of command and expects members of our community to follow the chain of command.  If you are not sure to whom a question or concern should be addressed, contact the main office, and they will provide you with the appropriate guidance.
