PR 18-30 Norton v. Pawtucket School Department No Violation

The Complainant alleged the Pawtucket School Department violated the APRA because the document it provided in response to his request was not the document Complainant sought. This Department found no violation of the APRA because it was the Complainant's duty as requestor to frame his request with sufficient particularity, which he did not do until after the School Department responded. Additionally, the evidence demonstrated that the School Department did not maintain or keep a document like the one the Complainant sought through his request, nor does the APRA require the School Department to create such a document.
