Asheville City Schools and Buncombe County Schools district office employees

Hi- I’d like to know a) Name of employee, b) current salary and c) the employee’s current work assignment for both ACS central office as well as Buncombe County School District central office. Thank you for helping!

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 02/20/19: We received a similar request (to the above) on 02/12/19 for BCS Central Office info that has already been “Sent to Government”, but will be “closed” and merged into the above request. That request asked for

Subject: Buncombe County Schools Central Office Personnel
Message: “Hi! I would like a list of all personnel at the Buncombe County Schools Central Office with their job titles and their most recent salaries. Please include department heads and all of their direct reports. Thank you so much for your assistance!”


We also received a very similar request  (to the above) on 02/20/19 related to ACS. That request has been “Closed” and merged into the above request. The request asked:

Subject:
 Asheville City Schools Central Office salary records
Message: “Pursuant to NCGS Chapter 126, Article 7, I respectfully request the following information for all employees of the Asheville City Schools Central Office: (1) Name. (2) Age. (3) Date of original employment (4) Current position. (5) Title. (6) Current salary. As noted in NCGS Chapter 126, Article 7, the term “salary” includes pay, benefits, incentives, bonuses, and deferred and all other forms of compensation paid by the employing entity Thank you.”


Since both new requests ask for very similar info. related to both ACS and BCS like the original request (above at top), rather than further duplicate information, we’re going to amend and merge all the related ACS / Bunc. County District office requests into one. The message we send to ACS Central office and BCS District office will be as follows:

Subject: Asheville City Schools and Buncombe County Schools district office employees
Message: “Pursuant to NCGS Chapter 126, Article 7, I respectfully request the following information for all employees of the Asheville City Schools Central Office and Buncombe County District Office:

(1) Name
(2) Age
(3) Date of original employment
(4) Current position or work assignment
(5) Title
(6) Current salary
(7) Please include department heads and all of their direct reports.
As noted in NCGS Chapter 126, Article 7, the term “salary” includes pay, benefits, incentives, bonuses, and deferred and all other forms of compensation paid by the employing entity

Thank you for helping!”

    **Editor’s Note: We acknowledge the ACS record process, as provided by Dr. Patterson on a previous Sunshine Request in March 2018.

     

    1. Even though the public records law and personnel information law do not specifically require ACS to email public records, we will email public information upon request. If an issue arises regarding a specific response, we are more than willing to discuss that with you.

     

    2. As you know, the public records law does not require any public entity to create documents or answer questions. Please make sure that everyone using your service is aware of this. Please know that Asheville City Schools does its best to respond to questions and concerns from parents and members of the public. We prefer to speak with individuals and establish positive relationships. This will allow everyone to have a dialogue and understand important aspects of any concerns or issues. We encourage that individuals contact us directly with questions.
