"I have enjoyed my tenure as superintendent and am leaving only because I wish to spend more time with my wife and family.

"I would be remiss if I did not say that this was a difficult decision to make, especially with the continued support I have received from district stakeholders and all of the various members elected to our Board of Education throughout my administrative career."

Taylor gave his official letter of retirement to the Board of Education on Wednesday. He offered his assistance with the transition. His last official date of employment will be June 30. .
