        City schools map future

        If Oxford school administrators have their way, construction on a new high school could begin next year.
        The new high school is just one of several building projects city school leaders are considering to keep up with the growing number of students in the district.
        The Oxford School Board approved its 10-year capital improvement plan at Monday’s meeting. The plan is essentially a wish list of building needs that school administrators believe the district will need over the next decade.

                    Keeping gangs at bay

                    When does wannabe youth gang activity turn into actual gang activity? That’s a question the Oxford School District hopes to never have to answer as it continues to remain vigilant each year to keep such issues minimal in the community. But, like every public school in the country, the district does see its share of students fascinated by gang culture.

                    Earlier this winter, a situation occurred at Della Davidson Elementary School in which individual fourth- and fifth-graders called themselves members of two gangs. They also, reportedly, used tactics to bully other students. (March 22, 2010, Page 1)
