Douglas County school board members gave former superintendent an ultimatum, new audio reveals

Colorado Public Radio: A newly released audio recording of a coffee meeting between former Douglas County superintendent Corey Wise and two school board members shows them giving him an ultimatum: They would fire him for cause if he didn’t resign in a few days. 

But the two members testified under oath in a February court proceeding that didn’t happen.

The audio recording of the January 28 meeting was recorded by Wise on his cell phone. It was filed in district court Wednesday as part of a lawsuit Highlands Ranch resident Robert Marshall filed against the board’s conservative majority. That lawsuit alleges that the four new members of the board secretly decided among themselves, in a series of one-on-one meetings, to oust Wise, circumventing Colorado’s open meetings law.
