August 7, 2019 - Late this afternoon, Shakopee Public Schools was informed by an attorney working for the district that the Shakopee Police Department (City of Shakopee) has decided to no longer send a joint request to the Department of Administration regarding the release of the NeuVest Report. The City of Shakopee will make this request to the Department of Administration on its own.
The June 2019 data request asking for the NeuVest report was made to the Shakopee Police Department/City of Shakopee. Thus, the city has always controlled the decision-making regarding whether or not to release the report. It has also always controlled the final decision as to whether to make a joint request, a lone request, or to not send a request to the Department of Administration on this matter.
“My hope is that the City of Shakopee will receive a quick decision on its request to the Department of Administration, and then we can all move forward,” said Superintendent Mike Redmond.
