OM 17-34 Jones v. Kingston Hill Academy No Violation

The Complainant alleged that the KHA violated the OMA during its April 3, 2017 meeting when it improperly convened into executive session to discuss the proposed sale of property. Specifically, the Complainant alleged that the KHA property was not "publicly held" pursuant to R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-5(a)(5). We found that as a public charter school, the KHA was clearly a public school under state law. See R.I. Gen. Laws 16-77-2.1 Accordingly, property owned by the KHA is "publicly held." We therefore found no violation.
