GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Critics of the Jefferson County school board are launching an effort to recall the board’s conservative majority.

A group called Jeffco United for Action announced Friday that two parents of students in the district submitted a proposed recall petition to the county clerk’s office. If the language is approved, the group would have 60 days to gather 15,000 signatures for each of the three school board members it is trying to oust.

One of the stated reasons for the recall is the board majority’s consideration of reviewing the new Advanced Placement U.S. history curriculum, which prompted waves of student protests in the suburban Denver district last year. But the group also accuses the members of meeting in secret and wasting taxpayer money, including paying the superintendent they hired $280,000.
