Six Colorado news outlets sue Denver Public Schools for executive session footage

Colorado Newsline: Six Colorado news outlets, including Newsline, are suing Denver Public Schools to gain access to footage of the district board’s March 23 executive session in which board members discussed school safety plans and emerged with a new policy.

Members of the district’s Board of Education held a special meeting following a shooting last month at Denver’s East High School, which left two administrators injured. The incident was the second shooting on or near East High property in as many months, and the 17-year-old suspect was later found dead in Park County of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Board members spent the majority of the lengthy meeting behind closed doors, and upon returning to the public, voted unanimously to approve the return of school resource officers without any public discussion.
