Principal Frank Savo of Oxford High School has recently
announced the names of Steering Committee members who will direct the school’s
efforts during its accreditation by the Committee on Public Schools of the New
England Association of Schools and Colleges.
NEASC is a voluntary membership
organization of more than 1,800 public schools, colleges and universities,
independent schools, and vocation/technical and career institutions. The
Association’s Committee on Public Secondary Schools works with individual
schools to improve the quality of their programs at all levels through a
process of self-study, evaluation, and follow-up activities. Oxford High
School’s Steering Committee will be co-chaired by Corey Evans (English teacher
& Department Chair), and Michael Forcucci (Social Studies teacher).
The other members of the Committee are:
Frank Savo – School Principal
Robert McGrath – Vice Principal
Sophia Velez – School Counselor
Kim Vigil – World Language Teacher
Principal Savo has also invited parents of school children and other interested community residents to assist in the self-study, which is currently being conducted by the school’s professional staff. The self-study is a significant component in the accreditation process, during which all aspects of the school will be evaluated.
Volunteers are most urgently needed to serve on committees which will evaluate areas of Core Values, Beliefs, and Learning Expectations; Curriculum; Instruction: Assessment of and for Student Learning; School Culture and Leadership; School Resources for Learning; and Community Resources for Learning.
Anyone interested in volunteering time or in learning more about the self-study should contact Corey Evans or Michael Forcucci, who are coordinating the accreditation process at the school. They can be contacted during school hours at:
