Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Taylor

It is my privilege and honor to serve as Superintendent of Washington County School District.  I continue to have the passion and commitment to serve this organization, as well as the desire to continue to make a difference in the Washington County School District.

For 2018-2019 School year as the Superintendent of Schools, I remain committed to the students of the Washington County School District. Together we will continue to move forward with every child in mind. Our goal is to provide excellent instruction to every child to be an academically successful student and a socially responsible citizen.

In order to continue to advance our mission--to empower all students to become well educated, productive citizens by providing appropriate, high quality, and rigorous educational programs in a safe learning environment-- the school district has approved a measure that would levy a half cent (.005) sales tax on purchases within Washington County for the purpose of funding technology and facility needs.  I appreciate the public’s support in this.

On behalf of the Washington County School District, School Board Members, the leadership and administrative team, professional staff and support staff, I welcome you to join us in preparing your child for their future.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you at any time during the school year.   I have an open door policy and always invite your comments.
