Use of Student Images

The Oxford Academy and Central School District features photographs, videos and/or the work of our students in district and community publications on a regular basis.  Names sometimes accompany these images, especially for those students who earn special recognition (awards, certificates, honors, etc.) from the district and/or outside entities.

These images may appear in printed district publications (such as brochures, calendars, newsletters, pamphlets, yearbooks, etc.): on the district’s website (www.oxac.org); on the district’s social media pages (Facebook and Twitter); et al.

If you object to your child’s image, name or work appearing in these formats, you must submit that objection in writing to the district Superintendent.
