John Smith started this petition to Woods Charter School Board and

The Woods Charter School Board recently voted to keep the school entirely on Plan C until at least January at the recommendation of the administration. By doing this both the Woods Charter School administration and School Board are failing our children miserably. Woods will now be THE ONLY school in all of Chatham County that is not returning to in-person learning for a portion of our students. This is a decision that harms all of our students and our youngest students in particular who haven’t had the time to develop independent study skills. Chatham Charter, Haw River, and all Chatham County Public Schools have decided to move to hybrid learning for at least K-2. Woods students of all grades are struggling on a daily basis with getting the education they so deserve and they WOULD have if they were in the school building and learning. It is time for parents, students, teachers, and other concerned community members to advocate for getting our students back in the classroom. 


Woods Charter is supposed to be one of the top schools in North Carolina. It is a reputation that the school has worked hard to keep but that reputation is rapidly evaporating the more we continue to ignore our student’s needs. These kids are not able retain the information they need to learn and are getting way less instruction than in school. Most students only have one virtual meeting a week per class. The decision to remain closed was largely made due to teachers’ unwillingness to return. However, according to the Principal's Report, 44.1% of teachers and 58.6% of parents would have their students return. If we are going to maintain our reputation as one of the best schools in North Carolina we need to put our students first. It is the school's job to provide a quality education for our students. We can not continue to ignore their needs. It is essential that we return to school now under Plan B in order to support our students.

Woods can do this!! We are creative enough to create a plan that protects our faculty and students, while providing in-person instruction. 

Please take some time to share this petition with several friends as well as encourage every member of your household to sign. If you would like to go a step further in voicing your support for reopening Woods, please email either or both the school board at board@woodscharter.org and the principal, Cotton Bryan, at cbryan@woodscharter.org. It is absolutely essential that Woods students receive a proper education.
