Teacher salaries

Hello! I would like to make a public records request to Buncombe County for records of public teacher salaries 08/30/2016 to 8/31/2017. I don't need individual names, if we have gender for each position. If we don't have gender, I would need the first name. I would appreciate it if we had years of tenure as well. I would ideally like to receive those documents in a machine readable format such as CSV. Thank you for your assistance!

Thank you very much for your assistance with this request!

    Hi Deborah,
    Thank you for your reply.
    Since we anonymize all our requests, I do not usually receive any identifying information along with the request to give me the opportunity to email a requester directly. However, I can use my best judgement to clarify on their behalf:
    My interpretation of the request is that they would like to have a list of all BCS teacher salaries for teachers employed during the period of 8/30/2016 – 8/31/2017, including teachers that may no longer be employed by BCS, but were at some point during that time. This information should also include either the person’s gender (or first name), as well as their Years of State Service and career status.
    I will also post on a note on our website that if the requestor would like to further clarify anything (besides what I just stated) they may do so by resubmitting the request.
    We appreciate your time, and thank you for your help.
    Have a sunny afternoon!

    Good afternoon! I am seeking clarity on this request specifically years of tenure statement. Are you wanting years of experience or the number of teachers that have career status? 
    Thank you for your assistance with this! 
    Have a great afternoon!

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your reply.
    Our requests are anonymized, so I typically do not receive any identifying information about who requester is that would allow me to contact them directly. I will update the request on our website to include your note about communicating with the administrative office.
    Thank you for your help.
    Have a great day!

    We just received a new request for information that may be available in your office, via SunshineRequest.com! In the past, we had been corresponding with Kathy Hughes.
