Letter to the Editor: Jeffco gets less transparent for parents


Why, at their Jan. 11 meeting, did the Jeffco school board take it upon themselves to swiftly pass a consent agenda item making it more difficult for parents to know if their children’s teachers or school staff members had been charged, or arrested for a crime?

Shouldn’t the recent student abuse scandals in Cherry Creek, Aurora, and Denver have given them pause?

Why, in this era of sexual abusers Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer, has our Board opted for more secrecy, not less?

Why did the Board do this without first soliciting community input?

Why shouldn’t this Board have, instead, opted for a higher level of student protection?

Russell W Haas,
