OXFORD, Mich. – The Oxford school board meeting Tuesday night for the first time since a new lawsuit alleged an armed school security guard had the opportunity to stop the shooter but dismissed what was happening as a drill.
People waited hours for the opportunity to speak about the new revelation.
Many parents and students that attended Tuesday (Aug. 9) night’s meeting had a lot of things they wanted to get off their minds.
The school board started the meeting with a review of their new safety plans before going into a closed secession for about an hour, where people began meeting amongst themselves to discuss their own concerns.
Local 4 spoke to one mother that was in attendance who said they, as parents want to truth.
She said they feel like they have waited and that they have been denied that truth at every turn.
“Our kids are due back here in just a couple of weeks, and we really are in no better position than we were on Nov. 30 at this point,” said the mother. “Yes, we have some new technology, but we still don’t even know how it works.”
