Devin Padavil » Superintendent


Taylor ISD Community,


I am honored to serve as Superintendent of Taylor ISD. This is a tight-knit community with a proud sense of tradition. That pride serves as the foundation for a future of excellence for all students. Our Board of Trustees, parents, teachers, and each stakeholder has high aspirations for students and we are committed to building a learning culture that helps each child develop their strengths.


There are many variables from the quality of curriculum to the quality of facilities that make a school district great. Our path to greatness is within our mission and the reason we show up each day: to inspire, equip, and empower every student to achieve their unique potential. Please reach out to us for any questions or ideas that best support our community of learners.
