Dear Robert A. Taft IT High School Families,
I am eager to get this year started and we know that 2020-2021 will be a dynamic, exciting and successful year for our Learning Community. As the leader of this unique and innovative community learning center, I am looking forward to partnering with you to support your child.
Robert A. Taft Information Technology High School's mission is to graduate young people who are prepared to meet the challenges of the future through higher education and the world of work.

As we begin our year with Remote Learning please know that this model has come a long way since last spring. We have greatly improved our practices and this fall our remote learners will be able to:
- follow a provided schedule;
- participate in daily interactions with dedicated teachers;
- complete assignments using district provided devices
- receive high quality grade level instruction
- receive grades and feedback on assignments;
- see and virtually interact with classmates;
I know how hard the staff at Taft has worked over the summer to prepare themselves for both Remote Learning and future in person learning. Our commitment to maintaining high academic standards is strong. As we do each year, we will address unfinished learning with both on grade level instruction and the accelerated learning lessons provided by the district to help target skill specific instruction. Our innovation will connect and build relationships that strengthen our school community.
