(August 2019) Request for Florida Department of Education Salary Records

I would like to make a public records request to the Florida Department of Education, the State of Florida, and/or the School District of Palm Beach County for records of faculty and staff salaries, including stipends and bonuses, of G-Star School of the Arts, a public charter school, from 08/01/2018 to 7/31/2019. The business name under which the school operated may be Students in the Arts TV.

I would ideally like to receive those documents in a searchable format such as CSV.

Thank you very much for your assistance with this request!

    Unfortunately, we only have access to the rate of annual/hourly rate of pay. We have no data on stipends or bonuses for a Charter School.

     

    Thank you.

    Hello,

     

    Please see the attached spreadsheet per your request.

     

    Thank you.

    Personnel information, including salary for Charter employees, is entered by the Charter school and therefore the District does not vouch for the completeness or accuracy of their data. Charter schools do not use the District Payroll system to pay their employees.

     

    In addition, as Charter Schools are considered public entities, per F.S 119.071 which protects certain data from public disclosure including employee names, each Charter School is responsible to ensure personal information is not released to the public if any employee does claim an exemption. The District does not monitor this for Charter School employees which means we are not able to provide employee names at G Star Academy.

    Good afternoon.

     

    We are in receipt of your request for salary of faculty and staff at G-Star School of the Arts for the time period 8/1/2018-7/31/2019. Your request has been logged as SR-0076594. As we can process your request, we must inform you of the following disclaimer:

     

    Personnel information, including salary for Charter employees, is entered by the Charter school and therefore the District does not vouch for the completeness or accuracy of their data. Charter schools do not use the District Payroll system to pay their employees. Therefore we suggest you follow up with the Charter school itself to verify accuracy of their information. We may gladly produce any information that has been provided to us by Charter Schools if you request such but again, please be aware the District is not confirming the completeness or accuracy of the data.
    In addition, as Charter Schools are considered public entities, per F.S 119.071 which protects certain data from public disclosure including employee names, each Charter School is responsible to ensure personal information is not released to the public if any employee does claim an exemption. The District does not monitor this for Charter School employees which means we would not be able to provide employee names at, in this case, G Star Academy.

     

    Please advise if you wish for the District to proceed with this request or do you wish to follow up with G Star itself?

     

    Sincerely,

    Hal Toshek, PHR, SHRM-CP

    Good afternoon Palm Beach County School District,

     

    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 received a request for information that may be available in your office. We were instructed to reach out to you to get this request completed by the Chief of Bureau of Personnel Management, David Dawkins, at the Florida Department of Education. If you can also please provide a rough estimate as to when the request will be completed, we will follow up again at that time.

     

    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.

     

    Here are the details of the request:

    Sunrise Request

     

    Your public records request has been forwarded to me for response.

     

    The Florida Department of Education does not maintain personnel records for school district employees.

     

    Each school district has a Human Resources Office that maintains all personnel information for its own district staff.

     

    You may find the contact information for the Human Resources Office in each school district by visiting the follow link: http://www.fldoe.org/eias/flmove/supers.asp.

     

    Respectfully,

     

    David Dawkins

    Chief, Bureau of Personnel Management
