Yesterday’s front page story on Oxbridge Academy  detailed staff concerns over high turnover, firings, accusations of sexual harassment and an increasing slant toward athletics over academics.

Prompted by Palm Beach Post reporting, Chairman Bill Koch, who founded the high school in 2011, has assigned a team to conduct an internal investigation.

Here’s a list of the five highest-compensated employees, as spelled out in the school’s 2014 Form 990, filed with the IRS. The pay information covers the period from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015:

  • Robert C. Parsons, ceo/president/director (now on mandated leave of absence with pay): $694,540.
  • John Weger, treasurer (no longer at Oxbridge): $253,711.
  • Doug Socha, head football coach: $230,481.
  • Stanley Ross, dean of students/head lacrosse coach: $214,204.
  • Bridget D. Baratta, director of philanthropy (no longer at Oxbridge): $190,000.
