The House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing Tuesday into the operation of the Rhode Island Training School.

Gov. Gina Raimondo ordered a review of the facility and the state Department of Children, Youth and Families following a disturbance in July that sent students and staff to the hospital.

The committee is also expected to hear how DCYF is meeting recommendations following a March report on child fatalities.

The meeting is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. in Room 101 at the State House.
