The investigative team will be in Oxford on Thursday, November 2, 2023, at the Oxford Township Board Room, 300 Dunlap Road, Oxford, MI 48371, to take questions from the community about our work and findings, at 1:00 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m.
Community members are encouraged but not required to submit questions in writing before the meetings on November 2, through
[email protected], to facilitate the discussions that day. At the November 2 meetings, we will not be taking questions from the media. We will consider a date for follow-up meetings with the community after the meetings on November 2.

A MESSAGE FROM
Oxford Community Schools Boards
On November 30, 2021, four Oxford families suffered unparalleled loss. Our entire community continues to grieve and seek answers. The Oxford Community Schools Board takes our obligation to help find those answers very seriously.
We commend the district administration for their rigorous response, beginning just days after the shooting with a full security examination and continuing through today with installation of some of the country’s most advanced security technologies.
For our part, the Oxford Community Schools Board has commissioned an independent investigation into the events surrounding the November 30 shooting.
Our collective goals are to maximize student and staff safety and, specifically, to prevent another shooting at Oxford Community Schools.
We invite you to learn more about the investigation, as well as the safety and security upgrades implemented by the district, on this website. We further invite anyone with questions about the investigation or information to share with the investigative team to contact them at [email protected].
Together, we can create an environment where students feel safe, supported and empowered to learn.
