Rise & Shine: Aurora Central High School wins Broncos grant for new field

A group of Adams 14 parents and community organizers hosted a meeting with all five board members on Friday night. The goal was to let parents air their concerns on neutral ground and to give the board a list of demands. Chief among them was to remove the superintendent. The group said they are ready to recall school board members if their concerns aren't addressed. But it's not the first time some of the board members have been threatened with a recall. Read more on that story below.

Today's news roundup also includes a story about a large grant from the Denver Broncos to an Aurora high school, and another one from NBC to a southwest Denver school.

Have a good day!
