Montezuma-Cortez cancels meeting to re-create ‘lost’ recording of executive session

The Cortez Journal: The Montezuma-Cortez RE-1 Board of Education on Monday canceled a meeting scheduled for that evening where it planned to “re-create” the secret session in which former Superintendent Risha VanderWey was asked to resign.

No recording of that meeting, announced Jan. 18 to discuss “personnel matters regarding the Superintendent’s evaluation,” was available to The Journal or to a Pagosa Springs lawyer who has filed suit against the district.

The recording was lost due to “technical issues beyond control,” the agenda for the Monday meeting said. The district announced the special meeting on its Facebook page late Friday afternoon.
