Statement on East Cheer Situation

Oct. 14, 2017

DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg released this statement Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017 following the Denver District Attorney’s Office announcement in the East cheer investigation.

“We appreciate the partnership of the Denver Police Department and the Denver District Attorney’s Office in this matter. The decisions made by Denver Public Schools were based on the facts as detailed in the independent report by Davis, Graham and Stubbs.

Our top priority has been, and will continue to be, the safety and well-being of our students. In support of this, and to allow our students to continue healing, we would ask news media to refrain from showing videos of the “forced splits” in covering this issue.”
