PR 18-17 Dunlap v. Providence School Department No Violation

The School Department did not violate the APRA when it denied a request for a videotape depicting a minor. Even if the requester had an enhanced interest in the requested record, an APRA request must be evaluated with respect to the public at-large, not the interest of the particular requester. Also, the School Department did not violate the APRA when it failed to respond to an appeal within ten (10) business days since the appeal was not directed to the "chief administrative officer." See R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-2(2).
