Former Douglas County School District superintendent Corey Wise retains counsel regarding his firing

Attorneys representing former Douglas County School District Superintendent Corey Wise filed a wide-ranging open records request Friday and gave notice to the school district to preserve evidence related to his firing by the new majority on the district’s school board.

The Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) request and notice to preserve documents and evidence was sent Friday to the district’s general counsel by attorneys Jordan Factor, of Allen Vellone Wolf Helfrich & Factor P.C. and Qusair Mohamedbhai of Rathod Mohamedbhai LLC.

The CORA request comes two weeks to the day that the newly elected “Kids First” school board majority — Board President Mike Peterson, Vice President Christy Williams, Becky Myers and Kaylee Winegar — voted to fire Wise without cause. Benjamin DeGolia said in a statement that he could confirm the two law firms had been retained to represent Wise with respect to his firing by the board.
