DPS school board minutes of March 23 executive session raises questions, eyebrows

The Denver Gazette: A public relations and marketing expert spent about two hours with the Denver Public Schools (DPS) Board of Education last month in a meeting closed to the public to discuss the shooting at East High School, according to minutes of the executive session.

The board can invite whomever is needed to provide information to them on sensitive subjects that are exempt from Colorado’s open meetings law, which requires the state and local governments to discuss and take action in meetings open to the public.

It is unclear, though, why Bill Good — the board’s spokesperson — was needed in the March 23 executive session to discuss security arrangements and investigations stemming from a shooting that wounded two administrators the day before.
