A company has compiled a list of the safest school districts in Alabama, and Oxford City Schools has cracked the top ten. The Niche Safest School District list surveys students and parents in all 173 Alabama districts and combines that with police, crime, and suspension numbers to make the list. Assistant Superintendent Chris Cox credits the honor to the people he refers to as family. Also scoring high on the list is Etowah County Schools, which came in at number nine. The safest school district according to the Niche survey is Hoover City Schools.
