Welcome to the Oxford Public Schools website; we hope you find it informative and useful to support our students. We continue to work on the District initiatives to improve our educational opportunities, integration of technology, and outreach to parents and community to work together to provide the best education for all of our students. In addition, there are several key state-wide mandates that we are engaged in:
Measuring Student Growth using District Determined Measures
Aligning the Curriculum to the Common Core and MA Frameworks
Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
Rethinking Equity and Teaching for English Language Learners (RETELL)
More information can be found regarding each of these on the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education website at: www.doe.mass.edu
Parents, remember you can insure your child’s success in the Oxford Public Schools if you make sure that your children are in school on time each day. Absences, tardiness, and dismissals do not allow students to achieve to their potential. Attendance is not only required, it is the law so please do your part to make sure that all students are in school every day. While we understand there are obligations, appointments and illness that will occur, scheduling where possible early or late in the day will minimize the disruption to your student’s learning and achievement.
Our Vision Statement: "Through the efficient and effective allocation and use of all resources, teaching and learning will improve to engage every student in every classroom every day; thereby increasing student growth and maximizing every student's potential, making the Oxford Public Schools the choice for all" guides us each day as we dedicate ourselves to our core mission that all students deserve the best educational opportunities to be successful in an increasingly complex world.
