Welcome to Taft Elementary School
My name is Kortney Milford. It is a sincere honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Taft Elementary School. I am very passionate about education and can’t wait to partner with you to provide our students with a PLAIN EXCELLENT elementary experience.
Just a little about me since I am new to the building; before joining Team Taft, I served in a variety of education roles including teacher, Instructional Coach, Team Leader, and Interim Principal. I am a graduate of GlenOak having proudly attended Plain Local in grades K-12. I came back to teach here because I am proud of the education and opportunities Plain provides for our kids. I live with my family in the Plain Local School District because I wouldn't want my own children to receive their education anywhere else! I couldn't be happier than to continue my journey at Taft Elementary!
At Taft we serve a diverse population of approximately 450 wonderful students in grades K-4. We also house four Stark County preschool units and a Developmentally Disabled county program. Furthermore, we offer before and after school care operated by the YMCA. If you have any questions or need more information about our fine school, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to hear from you!
I am excited to meet all the Taft families and students. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns or ideas you would like to share. I can hardly wait for the 2018-2019 school year to begin! Thank you for the opportunity to serve at Taft in this role!
