BREAKING NEWS: is the newly elected Estes Park School Board holding a special meeting to fire Superintendent Sheldon Rosenkrance?

Are we seeing what happened in Douglas County School District happen here in Estes Park? Please share out this breaking news.

In this special breaking news podcast, I break down the happenings within the Estes Park School District’s Board of Education with tonight’s special board meeting with an executive session to possibly oust the Estes Park School District Superintendent Sheldon Rosenkrance.

I will be attending tonight’s special meeting which was announced at the last possible minute to be legal yesterday evening. (I am a parent to two students and also a grandaughter in the district and receive School district emails and after going back through my email records, never received the notification.)

I have also submitted a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request to gather further information on this topic as now there is no word coming from the district due to a possible Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA.)

This is a developing story and I will update it as more information becomes available.

I reached out to Board of Education President Stacey Ferree but had not heard back by publication.

Here is the email release put out last night by the District:

This email will serve as notice of a EPSD Board of Education Special Meeting that will be held on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 at 4:15 pm via Zoom.  The Board of Education will be meeting in person at the Administration Office located at 1605 Brodie Avenue, Estes Park, CO 80517.
