PR 16-11 Vowels v. RISE/Mayoral Academy

The RISE/Mayoral Academy ("Academy") violated the APRA when it failed to respond to the Complainant's APRA request. See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-7. This Department assumed, without deciding, that the Academy is subject to the APRA and nothing within the finding bars the Academy from raising this issue at a future point. Based upon the specific facts and nature of the APRA, this Department concluded that the Academy's failure to timely respond to the APRA request was not a willful or knowing, or reckless, violation.
