OM 18-28 Goodness v. Davies Career and Technical High School Violation

The Davies Career and Technical High School ("School") violated the OMA when it convened into executive session pursuant to R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-5(a)(1), yet did not discuss any person's job performance, character, or physical or mental health. Rather, the School's discussion centered on the economic viability of a job position, which is not appropriate for executive session. See Hayes v. Bristol/Warren Regional Joint Finance Committee, OM 95-32. This Department directed the School to reconsider and re-vote on the matter discussed during its executive session meeting at a properly posted future meeting.
