🏫 “Hey hey, ho ho, Tay Anderson has got to go”
Hundreds of Denver Public Schools students walked out yesterday in protest of DPS board director Tay Anderson, who has been at the center of a five-month sexual misconduct investigation that concluded last week. The students gathered outside DPS headquarters and called for Anderson’s resignation (the board can’t forcibly remove its own members). The investigation found that the most serious accusations against Anderson could not be substantiated, but that he did engage in inappropriate communication with a student. The school board voted to censure him last Friday. [CO Sun]

💉 Mass vax sites return to Denver
Looking to get vaccinated? Now would be a convenient time. Earlier this month, Biden announced a federal vaccine mandate for all U.S. companies with 100-plus employees. With those vaccine deadlines fast approaching, the state has set up four mass vaccination sites (in Aurora, Littleton, Commerce City, and Colorado Springs) to help meet a potential increase in demand. The sites opened yesterday and will administer first, second, or third vaccine doses until Sept. 30. [9News]

🏈 Jeff Bezos or Jay-Z?
Both billionaires are rumored to be interested in making a bid for ownership of the Denver Broncos. Following some family drama among late owner Pat Bowlen’s children, it seems likely that the Bowlens will not keep the team in the family, but sell it for an estimated $4 billion once the current NFL season ends. Front Office Sports reports that Jeff Bezos and Jay-Z are two names that keep popping up in discussions of the sale, but this isn’t the first NFL ownership rumor for either man. [Front Office Sports]
