SCREENING COMMITTEE.  In the new few weeks, the School Committee intends to appoint a Superintendent Screening Committee to assist in the search process. While the School Committee has the sole authority to appoint the Superintendent, it wishes to have the benefit of input from a Screening Committee made up of various members of the community and schools. The Screening Committee will review applications, interview candidates, and recommend several candidates to the School Committee for further consideration.

The Oxford School Committee seeks two (2) parents to serve on the Screening Committee. Interested individuals should be available to attend several evening meetings, including all the candidate interview sessions, and should understand that much of the business of the Screening Committee will require a high degree of confidentiality.  Interested parties must be available the following evenings: 

Thursday, March 4;
Tuesday, March 9; and
Dates to be determined between March 11 - March 22

Individuals interested in participating on the Superintendent Screening Subcommittee should email the Executive Assistant at hcoffin@oxps.org by Monday, February 1st. The email should include your full name, telephone number, and confirmation that you are available during the above-listed dates.  The names of all interested individuals will then be passed along to the School Committee for consideration, with appointments to be made at the regular School Committee meeting on February 8th.

District and Schools Report Card

posted Dec 19, 2017, 5:31 AM by Kadion Phillips   [ updated Dec 19, 2017, 5:31 AM ]

Below are links to our Massachusetts district and school report cards.  An overview is provided in addition to the report cards.  The purpose of the report card is to give parents information about their child’s school in terms of academic achievement and the professional qualifications of its teachers. By making this information available each year, parents will learn how their school is doing, what its goals are, and what they can do to work more effectively with their teachers and administrators.


Additionally, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education plans to redesign school and district report cards for 2018 and has launched an online feedback form to gather input from a variety of stakeholders. The survey includes closed-ended questions about priorities for the reports as well as the opportunity to provide open-ended feedback. All community members are encouraged to provide input by going to this link: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4011401/School-and-District-Report-Card-2018-Redesign
