On May 16, 2018, the Asheville City School system closed for an optional teacher work day. The reason cited was the large number of leave requests in anticipation of a rally in Raleigh on that date. I would like a copy of the system’s personnel policy regarding leave requests, as well as the number of employees that received leave on that date. I would prefer the numbers be broken down by school, but if it is too cumbersome to do so, a total list of numbers will be acceptable.

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.
