A group of Wilmington-area charter schools has given up on its fight to keep secret the salary information of its employees.
On Thursday, Charter Day turned over the data requested more than a month ago by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, allowing the management company to be removed from “financial probationary status” which had threatened state funding.
In an email, DPI spokeswoman Lynda Fuller said the state intends to release the information at 5 p.m. Monday.
There’s a standard provision with state contracts that if during the bidding process a vendor marks something as a trade secret that officials don’t find as a trade secret there is a 48-hour delay before that information can be released.
That’s the practice officials are employing here, according to DPI officials.’
