Judge extends Denver Public Schools’ deadline to release recording of board’s closed-door meeting

The Denver Post: A judge on Tuesday denied Denver Public Schools’ request to put on hold his order requiring the district to publicly release its recording of a closed-door Board of Education meeting in March, but did give DPS two more weeks to turn it over.

Denver District Court Judge Andrew Luxen ruled last week that the school board violated state law when it met in an executive season on March 23, the day after the shooting inside East High School. He ordered the school district to release a recording of the meeting by noon Monday, but DPS appealed that ruling.

The judge’s order came after a coalition of media organizations, including The Denver Post, sued DPS, alleging the board violated Colorado law by making policy decisions behind closed doors and not properly declaring an executive session.
