OXFORD – The path for a final decision on any changes for the future use of the Oxford Middle School has been laid out.
“The ultimate result of what changes might occur to the Oxford Middle School will probably be decided about a year from now, maybe next March,” said Oxford Academy Superintendent Randy Squier, as part of the district’s five-year plan for facility use and maintenance.
The middle school’s 77-year-old design proved vulnerable in last year’s severe floods, costing the school about $1.1 million in damages.
The brunt of the cost was covered by state and federal emergency aid. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has asked the school to increase its insurance on the middle school up to $1 million.
