Roberson Named Superintendent

Bradley Roberson Oxford, Mississippi (March 10, 2021) — Twenty years of success in the Oxford School District separated Bradley Roberson from others in the selection of who would next fill the seat of superintendent. The board of trustees announced in a press conference today that he was chosen from a pool of qualified applicants that were screened and interviewed over the last month.

Mr. Roberson has served the district as the Assistant Superintendent and Director of Curriculum & Instruction for the past three years, prior to that he was principal of Oxford High School where under his leadership, the graduation rate increased to above 90% and OHS achieved the highest accountability point total in Oxford’s history since the establishment of the accountability model.

Mr. Roberson was one of 19 school district leaders from across the country selected to participate in the American Association of Administrators Aspiring Superintendent’s Academy.

His work with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement in Teaching has provided him with valuable experience in understanding continuous improvement and how best to meet the challenges of the district.

At today’s press conference, Bradley Roberson spoke about the value he places on relationships and stated a challenge for all district stakeholders. “It’s my desire to serve in a manner that’s inclusive of all, where all are valued and heard, and we work together to do what is best for all kids in our community. I can’t over emphasize the word together enough. Imagine if we were all willing to give up a part of ourselves to make those around us better. Every member of the Charger Family... students, parents, teachers, admin, board members... we would all be continually improving. That type of unselfish leadership is my heart’s desire. Mr. Harvey has done a tremendous job transitioning our district from a system of schools to a school system. The challenge now for all of us to to shift from a school system to a school community. That is when we will see all children thrive,” said Roberson.

Roberson’s wife, Nicole teaches science at Oxford High School, and has two children- Riley and Cullen. He is a Deacon at North Oxford Baptist Church and an Adjunct Professor for the University of Mississippi School of Education.

Roberson will begin his new role on July 1, 2021 as Superintendent Brian Harvey’s successor.
