City schools crack down on attendance

A new compulsory school attendance policy that follows state law will bring some significant changes to parents and students who miss more than 12 days in a school year. One of the options – Saturday school. (May 4, 2010, Page 6)

Softball savings

Despite initial estimates that a new softball field at Oxford High School would cost $1.2 million, bids on the project have come in at roughly half the cost. The Oxford School Board on Thursday approved the final two phases of the project for a total cost of $643,960. (April 30, 2010, Page 1A)

On Friday, the Oxford School Board met with the Oxford Board of Aldermen to present them with the district’s proposal for a new high school and complete renovation of the entire school district. (April 19, 2010, Page 1A)

Skip school, pay price

Skipping school or being tardy too often next year will come with some very real consequences if a new policy is approved by the Oxford School Board. A compulsory school attendance policy that follows state law will be voted on as soon as April 29. (April 14, 2010, Page 1A)

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.
