DC Public Charter School Board Advisory Opinion (OMA - Notice of Meetings)

On September 20, 2021, the Director of Open Government (the "Director") issued advisory opinion #OOG-2021-0001-M, concerning the “District of Columbia Public Charter School Board’s (“DC PCSB”) Compliance with the OMA.”  Review of the matter led the Director to the following findings: (1) DC PCSB violated the OMA’s “Notice of meetings” provision when it did not provide timely public notice of its April 5, 2021, Special Meeting on its website, on the Central Meeting Calendar, and in the D.C. Register; and (2) it was practicable for DC PCSB to publish its notice in the DC Register, yet DC PCSB failed to do so.
