OXFORD – Some members of the Oxford community do not want to see Superintendent Randall Squier’s contract renewed, and they are asking the board to take their opinion into consideration when making that decision.
Oxford community members are circulating a petition they plan to present to the board in July. The petition asks that Squier’s contract not be renewed.
At Monday night’s board meeting, a letter signed by seven community members was submitted to the board. “On behalf of the hundreds of Oxford School District taxpayers who have already signed a petition asking the OACS Board of Education not to renew Superintendent Squier’s contract, we respectfully request that you take no action on Superintendent Squier’s contract until you have heard the community’s concerns about his performance, and received their petition at your July 2009 meeting,” the letter states. The letter was signed by Oxford community members Laurie Law, Dave Emerson, Bill Troxell, Tom Emerson, Fred Bateman, Esther Fowlston and Dick Fowlston.
