Douglas County’s Board of Education will gather Friday evening to decide whether to keep the Superintendent Corey Wise in his position, a meeting that was hastily scheduled after a group of members earlier this week accused the board’s majority of trying to oust the district leader behind closed doors.

The district was thrown into turmoil Monday when three members alleged the school board’s president and vice president – Mike Peterson and Christy Williams, respectively – of giving Superintendent Corey Wise an ultimatum to resign by Wednesday or be voted out.

In the surprise and public Zoom meeting, the three members — Elizabeth Hanson, Susan Meek and David Ray – said they found out about the plans on Jan. 28  and that there had been no note, meeting or notice.  This, they said, violated Colorado open meeting laws, and that school board members are not authorized to take these actions on their own without informing the rest of the board.
