Broomfield High School Softball Remains on Leave, District Says Investigation Could Wrap Up Friday

Broomfield High School head coach Paula Seifried is on administrative leave as Boulder Valley School District investigates allegations of misconduct. That investigation could wrap up as early as Friday, according to district spokesman Randy Barber.

The Boulder Valley School District could wrap up its investigation into an allegation of misconduct by the head softball coach as early as Friday.

District spokesman Randy Barber in an email Thursday said Paula Seifried remains on leave as the district investigates, but he expects a resolution could be reached as early as Friday.

Broomfield police wrapped up their investigation, which began Aug. 28, on Wednesday.

“No crime was committed and there are no charges,” Joleen Reefe, police spokeswoman, said.

It will be up to the school as to what happens administratively. Reefe would not comment on the nature of the allegation. A police report was not available Thursday.

So far, the district and police have not released any information on the nature of the allegations leveled against Seifried, who has taught and coached at Broomfield High School for seven years.

In a letter sent to parents last week, Broomfield High Principal Ginger Ramsey wrote that “we take the safety and well-being of our students very seriously.

“I am reaching out to you to let you know that our Head Softball Coach Paula Seifried has been placed on administrative leave until further notice,” Ramsey wrote. “This is our normal procedure during any investigation in Boulder Valley School District.”

Assistant coaches have taken over in Seifried’s place as the investigation continues.
