Staff Picture

At William Howard Taft Elementary School, our mission is to ensure that all students receive, learn, and apply grade level instruction. Teachers will facilitate this learning with best first instruction and targeted interventions to support each student’s progress toward attainment of grade level or above proficiency.  Taft students will demonstrate their learning and application of essential skills and knowledge on formative and summative school, district, and state assessments, and teachers will utilize student achievement data to guide instructional decisions and planning. All of Taft's staff is committed to providing the quality educations expected for any RUSD student.
