The Jeffco school board will form a committee Thursday night to examine and evaluate the district’s curriculum.
Details on the direction and role of the committee are now listed on the Sept. 18 agenda, located at www.jeffcopublicschools.org.
The Republican seeking the county office that plays a big role in determining residents’ annual property-tax bills apparently has had some tax problems of his own.
County assessor candidate Ronald Sandstrom owes as much as thousands of dollars in unpaid state and federal taxes, according to court documents obtained by the Columbine Courier.
The documents show both the IRS and state Department of Revenue took legal action against Sandstrom over the alleged unpaid taxes.
Just a week after the school board approved his performance-based pay plan, Jeffco teachers recorded a vote of no confidence in school board President Ken Witt.
According to the teachers union, the vote by 180 representatives of non-administrative educators was unanimous.
"It is evident that educators in this district have had enough of the secrecy, waste, and disrespect of this board majority and its president,” said a statement from John Ford, president of the Jeffco Education Association.
