Oxbow begins principal search

BRADFORD—Oxbow has formally begun looking for a new principal after the man currently holding down the job was placed on leave earlier this month and has since been arraigned for drunk driving.
Orange East Supervisory Union Superintendent Beth Cobb has been directed by the Oxbow School Board to advertise for an “anticipated opening” for an interim principal to lead the high school for the remainder of the year. Current principal Doug Harris, who has been in the post for two years, left the school for medical reasons shortly after the new academic year began. The initial leave became effective on Sept. 6 and was to remain in effect through the end of the month.
