9-R Board of Education Statement on Lawsuit - December 3, 2021

There is currently a lawsuit against the Durango 9-R Board of Education and our Designated Election Official alleging that Andrea Parmenter vacated her residence in District D earlier than announced and asking for a special election to be held for District D. Due to Ms. Parmenter vacating her seat within 90 days of the election, the Board followed Colorado law to appoint someone to that seat.

After consulting with our legal counsel, the Board and Superintendent have decided it is in the best interest of the district to defend our actions in this case. Unfortunately, we expect this could cost the district up to $30,000.
