FIRST ON 3: Roger Bacon Academy willing to submit staff salaries as confidential trade secrets
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Leland-based Charter Day School, Inc., had until today to submit salaries of school personnel who work for and are paid by its management company Roger Bacon Academy.
But documents obtained today by WWAY show RBA is willing to make a deal.
An attorney for RBA responded to the state request in a letter last week by saying it “appears to overreach the specific charter language asserted.” The attorney also argued audits the schools must undergo should satisfy any state and federal requirements.
He did, though, say RBA would be willing to submit the information either under a confidentiality agreement with DPI or, if given more time to wait for a legal opinion and time to review, submit it without a confidentiality agreement as trade secrets protected under state law.
