Teachers, parents rally at Grant Ranch School in Denver

DENVER — The first day back-to-school for teachers isn’t usually as boisterous as it was at Denver school Monday.

Close to 50 teachers, parents and students stood on the corner near Grant Ranch School in southwest Denver showing signs of support for a long-time teacher. They say she’s about to be fired.

The teacher came under scrutiny for allegedly changing the words on a ‘continuation’ ceremony certificate for a student who is dyslexic.

Denver Public Schools would not confirm the firing, but did say through a statement:  “We are following all required legal procedures and cannot disclose the fact, or underlying basis, of employee disciplinary action.”
