Taglio appointed to LASD board

by Nick Veronin

The Los Altos School District's board of trustees has chosen Steve Taglio to replace outgoing board member Margot Harrigan when she leaves her post approximately one year before the end of her term in early December.

He is a longtime volunteer at Covington Elementary School, where his two children attended, and he served as PTA president and as a member of the school's site council. Taglio said he is looking forward to joining the board of trustees.

"To me, there was a natural progression there," he said of being asked to serve on the board. "It just made sense."

"What tilted it for Steve was his obvious knowledge of goings on," said Bill Cooper, president of the board of the Los Altos School District. Taglio has been to every school district meeting for the better part of two years, Cooper noted. "I believe he will be able to be up and running right from the start, given his knowledge of the range of issues facing the district."

Taglio said he hopes to help the district improve its communication with non-parent community members in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and the portions of Mountain View within the district's boundaries.

Taglio is not sure whether he will seek reelection when his term ends at the end of 2012.

"I want to make sure that I'm able to bring something to the table that's unique and helpful," he said, adding that he also wants to get a feel for the workload before he commits to run next year. It is his intent, however, to run in 2012 if his experience on the board is positive, he said.
