Douglas County school board majority sought to oust superintendent — but didn’t tell the rest of the board, members allege

The Denver Post: The president and vice president of the Douglas County School District Board of Education issued an undisclosed ultimatum to the district superintendent to resign or otherwise be voted out — all without informing the rest of the board, according to three board members who made the allegations Monday night.

In a striking public meeting, the three board members — Elizabeth Hanson, Susan Meek and David Ray — said they found out Friday that the board’s president and vice president, Mike Peterson and Christy Williams, had issued the ultimatum to Superintendent Corey Wise, giving him until Wednesday morning to decide his course of action.

There was no vote, no meeting and no notice that this would be happening, the three directors said Monday night in a Zoom meeting.
