John Reilly floor
Rep. Reilly approves resources for Oxford schools
RELEASE|May 19, 2022

State Rep. John Reilly, R-Oakland Township, today issued the following statement after voting for a plan to support students and staff after last year’s tragic shooting at Oxford High School:

“This critical funding will continue to strengthen and support the Oxford community. New resources will offer hurting students and staff counseling and care, help young people advance their disrupted academics, and protect school premises with enhanced security.

“In Oxford, hearts ache for lost friends and loved ones. The school and community will always remember their legacy, and Oxford Strong will grow stronger still.”

House Bill 6012 would provide a total of $6.8 million for Oxford Community Schools for this fiscal year and the next. The plan would fund support services, such as a psychologist, family school liaison, and mental health director; safety measures, such as a school resource officer, security cameras, and a mass notification system; summer school; repairs; and other needs. The bill also declares that it is the intent of the Legislature that results from summative assessments administered by the district from this school year are not used for retention decisions, educator evaluations, and other high-stakes decisions.

HB 6012 passed the House of Representatives unanimously and now proceeds to the Senate for consideration.
