Adams 14 school board sues management company, demanding details of investigation

The Denver Post: Adams 14’s Board of Education has filed suit against the management company overseeing the school district, seeking documents related to an investigation by MGT Consulting into a “personnel matter” that the board says was unauthorized and occurred as it was conducting its own financial audit.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Jan. 5, states that the school board asked for the records via the state’s public records law – known as the Colorado Open Records Act, or CORA — on Dec. 6, 2021. But so far, MGT Consulting has not handed over the documents, according to the lawsuit.

“MGT has failed to turn over documents to the district that the district is entitled to,” said Joe Salazar, an attorney representing the school board, adding, “Our biggest concern is that the investigation was not authorized by the Board of Education of Adams 14. We’re trying to figure out how it got started, what purpose and who authorized it.”
