To the Editor:
I am writng this in hopes of shining light and positive information about the recent CSC charges brought against FPS principal Andrea Wood.
It is with deep sadness and disgust that I am reaching out in regards to the media sensationalized case against Ms. Andrea Wood, Pathfinder Elementary School principal. (Fremont Public Schools)
I believe the story and Ms. Wood’s name was released prematurely in an effort to spark media controversy and shine a negative light on school administration.
The premature release of Ms. Wood’s name has had a devastating impact on her career, her family, and her overall well being. Her name has been put out there for all to see and judge based on speculation not facts.
Since the news release, the case against Andrea Wood has been closed. The Michigan State Police and Kent County Prosecutor are not pursuing other criminal charges or investigations.
It is time to report facts rather than speculation. It would be appropriate to release a statement updating the community about Ms. Wood’s innocence in regards to the criminal charges that were found to have no substance. I believe this would provide Ms. Wood, her staff, and the community in which she works a chance to process and heal.
