School board appeals judge decision on video surveillance

Pikes Peak Courier: The Woodland Park School District Board has appealed the order by Teller County District Judge Scott Sells to disclose video surveillance of a private discussion.

At issue is the conversation between three school board members and Ken Witt, a candidate at the time for the position of superintendent. The video camera caught, without audio, the four talking in the high school commons area. Witt was subsequently appointed by the board to a six-month interim position.

The board appealed the decision April 7, citing its concern that releasing videos of private discussions could put students and teachers at risk. The ruling could potentially lead to harassment of staff and families, stated the district in a press release.
