(Portland, OR) -- The principal of Portland's Access Academy abruptly resigned last Friday after the district reportedly began investigating allegations he'd forged teacher evaluations. "The Oregonian" quotes David Wood as saying he "felt pressure" that resulted in his cutting corners and not doing what he was supposed to do. Wood, who began his tenure as principal of Access Academy in 2014, tells the newspaper he believes he forged only one signature but submitted multiple teacher evaluations without actually having done them. Access Academy, which serves gifted students in grades one through eight, is currently housed at Rose City Park School in Northeast Portland. Wood says he ran short on time and submitted the evaluations to meet the deadline.
