A Jeffco school board study session that began at 3 p.m. Feb. 9 was abruptly closed to the public, and the Jefferson County Education Center was secured due to a direct threat made against Superintendent Tracy Dorland and district leadership.

In the notice about the incident sent to families of district students, no further information was given. Members of the public who were presenting to the board were permitted inside.

The Jeffco Transcript has reached out to Jeffco Public Schools for more information and will continue to update this story as new details emerge.
