Cherry Creek lunch lady releases records on her firing

From The Denver Post:  Della Curry, a Cherry Creek Schools kitchen manager who said she was fired for feeding hungry children in violation of school regulations, has made public documents that she says back her claims.

However, school district spokeswoman Tustin Amole said Curry has selectively released information that doesn’t reveal all the reasons for her termination. The district has insisted the records are not subject to Colorado’s open records laws and has refused to release them. Experts on the law say the district is incorrectly interpreting the law and should release performance reviews.

Curry, who worked at Dakota Valley Elementary School, released her personnel record and her termination letter to CBS4 on Wednesday.

She refused to provide the information to The Denver Post, saying that she doesn’t want to further engage in a public dispute with the district.

According to CBS4, Curry received a review that said she exceeded expectations in several areas and was “excellent” and “a welcoming presence.”
