OM 14-17 Zhang v. East Greenwich School Committee No violation

The School Committee did not violate the OMA when it refused to allow the Complainant to attend an executive session. The option to extend an invitation to an individual to attend an executive session is held by the public body, and not the individual seeking to attend the executive session. See Vargas v. Providence School Board, OM 94-26. The School Committee did not violate the APRA when it refused to provide the Complainant with a copy of the November 5, 2013 executive session meeting minutes as properly sealed executive session minutes are not public. See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-2(4)(J).
