PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit accusing the Pawtucket School District of violating the state's open records law.
The Rhode Island chapter of the ACLU says it filed a records request in October for documents relating to a new graduation testing requirement.
The ACLU requested similar information from every other district, and received a response from every district but Pawtucket. The ACLU says it also received no response to a follow-up request.
Pawtucket school officials could not be reached for comment Friday.
The ACLU is asking the court to demand the records and impose a fine on the district for violating state open records law.
