FOX31, other news outlets sue Denver Public Schools over executive session

FOX31: FOX31 and five other Denver-based news organizations formed a media coalition to file a lawsuit against Denver Public Schools over an alleged improper executive session that resulted in a reversal of its policy to bring school resource officers back into classrooms.

A day after a student at East High School shot two administrators and ultimately took his own life, the DPS Board of Education and Superintendent Alex Marrero entered a nearly five-hour-long executive session during a board meeting. The purpose of the executive session was to discuss “specialized details of security arrangements or investigations as a result of the incident that occurred on March 22, 2023,” and discussion of “individual students where public disclosure would adversely affect that person or persons involved as a result of the incident that occurred March 22, 2023,” according to the board’s website.
