Our classrooms and buildings re
ect our pride in our school. Our custodial sta
provides highquality maintenance and daily cleaning. We complete rou

erings, teachers,students, our District business manager and MOT director, our principal, and the superintendenthave developed a master plan for facili
es that includes adding future classrooms.
We encourage parents to become edu-cational partners through our variousadvisory committees: School Site Coun-cil (SSC), Parent Support Organization(PSO) or District English Learner Adviso-ry Committee (DELAC). The SSC reviewsachievement data and budgets, andupdates the Single School Plan for Stu-dent Achievement each year. DELACcovers a wide variety of topics of inter-est to parents of English Learners. Assis-tance for bilingual parents is available invarious offices on campus, and all mail-ings are done in English and Spanish.Parents and students are also involvedin Band Boosters and help raise moneyfor special projects.
The PSO raises money for scholarshipsby staffing the snack bars at track meetsand football, basketball and baseballgames. Teachers and staff connect withparents via a parent portal to our stu-dent information system called My Catsand via our website, marquees, emailand the local media. The Student Hand-book is updated each year and distribut-ed to parents. To find out how to volun-teer at Taft High, please contactDr. Mark Richardson, Principal, at(661) 763-2300.
