Buncombe County Schools (leave requests)

Hello,

On May 16, 2018, Buncombe County Schools closed under an optional teacher workday. The administration cited the reason as a 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.

Thank you!

    Hello Buncombe County Schools,

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office. If there’s another party that we should be contacting about this request then please let us know.

     

    Here are the details sent by the requester:
