Denver school board’s closed-door meeting after East High shooting did not violate law, DPS tells judge

The Denver Post: Denver Public Schools’ Board of Education properly noticed and convened an executive session when members met behind closed doors the day after the March shooting inside East High School, the school district’s attorney argued in court Friday.

The Denver Post and five other Colorado news organizations are suing DPS, alleging the school board violated the Colorado Open Meetings Law and seeking the release of the recording of the closed-door meeting.

“This is really just about a gotcha case,” DPS attorney Jonathan Fero told Denver District Court Judge Andrew Luxen during Friday’s hearing on the news organizations’ lawsuit.
