The Denver Post, other news outlets sue DPS for recording of closed-door meeting after East High shooting

The Denver Post: The Denver Post and five other Colorado news organizations sued Denver Public Schools on Friday, accusing the district’s elected Board of Education of breaking the law by creating public policy in secret the day after a student shot two administrators inside East High School.

The lawsuit, filed in Denver District Court, alleges the school board violated the Colorado Open Meetings Law and demands the release of the recording of its closed-door meeting on March 23.

The board members met privately for five hours that day before emerging and voting to approve, without discussion, a written memorandum directing Superintendent Alex Marrero to put armed police officers back in Denver high schools as a safety response to the East High shooting.
