The vision of the Taylor School District is to create the most appropriate environment in which ALL students can experience academic success and achieve their educational and career goals while becoming well-rounded members of our global community.

Together we will:

  • Improve academic achievement for all students in Taylor County Schools, as demonstrated by state assessment outcomes and other school-based measures.
  • Align the district spending plan to support educational objectives, maintain safe environments conducive to learning, and recruit and retain highly qualified and diverse staff, while maintaining fiscal stability.
  • Equip school environments and staff with the resources necessary to adequately prepare students for their future.
  • Nurture high levels of mutual support and trust with all district stakeholders, students, staff, and families.

TCSD aims to lead with ambition,  foster positive attitudes, obtain optimal attendance, and provide rigorous academics in order to improve student achievement
