R. Taylor

It is a tremendous pleasure and honor for me to begin this exciting year with you as your Superintendent of LUSD. This year marks the beginning of my 28th year of service to the Lakeside Union School District in various capacities. I am so proud to be a part of this fantastic district as our School Board Trustees are committed to providing the most innovative and engaging opportunities possible for our students. The Lakeside staff is eager to help students learn and achieve at high levels by offering multiple pathways for learning. LUSD promotes the well-being and academic achievement of every student we serve! The community will see me out and about at functions and community meetings. The LUSD staff will frequently see me on campuses and visiting the many departments that keep our excellent district moving forward. I am interested in open and honest comments from all stakeholders. You can reach me at anytime.
