Sandy Springs Patch has learned that changes are under way at Woodland Elementary Charter School.
On Friday, parents received an automated voice message from principal Ruth L. Baskerville saying that she was resigning her position, according to Michael White, an active parent at the school.
"It was a completely baffling," White said.
Woodland's charter expires in June. The school planned to apply for a new charter, which, if approved would take effect in the 2012/2013 school year. That would leave the school without a charter for a year.
Baskerville is highly regarded by most parents at Woodland. However, one parent commented that she was not surprised, implying the principal was forced out.
Patch has calls into Fulton County Schools and will provide additional information later today. Woodland staff said the issue is a Human Resources matter.
