OXFORD – Oxford Academy officials have confirmed that two individuals arrested within the last week for sex-related crimes were district employees.
According to Superintendent Randy Squier, both Patrick G. Woodard and Terrill E. Sutton are both employed by the Oxford Academy and Central School District. Both have been placed on paid leave, “pending civil service due process.”
The superintendent sent a letter home to parents Thursday regarding the two, unrelated arrests.
“In both cases the district has cooperated fully with law enforcement,” Squier stated in the letter. “Our first priority is and will always be the safety of our students and employees.”
The district itself provided information to the police which prompted the investigation of Sutton, a part-time school monitor at the Oxford Middle School who has worked for the district since September of 2007.
