The Unadilla Valley Central School District Board of Education is pleased to announce that Mr. Brenton Taylor will begin his appointment as the new superintendent of schools at its July 1 reorganizational meeting.
“The Board of Education is proud to welcome Mr. Taylor as Unadilla Valley Central School District’s next superintendent of schools. Our goal was to find a leader with experience, who knows our communities, parents, students, and staff, and who could carry on as a collaborative leader with a vision to help grow opportunities for students. Mr. Taylor values collaboration at all levels. We are confident that the district will be in good hands under the leadership of Mr. Taylor as our next Superintendent,” the Unadilla Valley CSD Board of Education said in a joint statement.
Mr. Taylor, who joined the district in 2017, served first as the director of curriculum and instruction/secondary principal for two years before assuming a role as deputy superintendent. Before coming to UV, Mr. Taylor held the position of pre–K through grade 12 principal at Hancock Central School District for five years and was an elementary teacher at Bainbridge–Guilford Central School for eight years.
Mr. Taylor holds a Certificate of Advanced Study in both District Leadership and Building Leadership from SUNY Cortland, a Master of Science degree in K–8 science from Walden University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, with a concentration in Childhood Development from SUNY Oneonta. His certifications include New York State Professional School District and School Building Leadership and permanent teaching certification in Elementary Education.
UV’s unique and expansive programming in a rural setting, as well as its family atmosphere and supportive communities, were what originally drew Mr. Taylor to the district.
“I’m honored to have been selected by the Unadilla Valley Board of Education as the next superintendent. I am excited to work with all the different stakeholders in the Unadilla Valley Central School District in my new role,” Mr. Taylor said. “With great anticipation, I look forward to working collaboratively with board members, staff, students, and the communities.”
Mr. Taylor’s wife, Wendy, is an elementary teacher, and his two children, Carter and Myriah attend school here. The Board of Education asks the Unadilla Valley CSD community to join them in welcoming Mr. Taylor as superintendent.
