Editorial: What is Denver’s school board hiding?

The Denver Gazette: Denver Public Schools continues to defy parents and the rest of the public by refusing to release the recording of a five-hour school board meeting conducted behind closed doors in March following a shooting at East High School. Two administrators were seriously wounded.

DPS is holding out even after a Denver judge ordered the recording’s release last week given a clear-cut violation of Colorado’s Open Meeting Law. Rather than comply with the law, the district on Monday announced it was appealing the court’s ruling.

Among the grounds for appeal that DPS’ hired-gun attorneys claimed in their filing in Denver District Court: that the judge erred in reviewing and then revealing details from the recording, “frustrating DPS’ rights of appeal.” As reported by The Gazette, the district’s lawyers also said the court order did not resolve details about attorney fees and court costs.
