Charter Day School Inc. said Monday it needs more time "to determine the scope of response required" to requests from the StarNews for public information.
The nonprofit, which oversees four charter schools in Southeastern North Carolina, had previously agreed to respond to the StarNews' requests on or before Monday, July 28. In a letter sent Monday afternoon, Mark Dudeck, authorized officer for Charter Day School Inc., said the StarNews will receive a response on or before Aug. 8.
Since early May, the newspaper has asked for salaries and bonuses, as well as financial information related to the schools' operations. Among the items requested are records of payments and contracts related to expenses on school budgets, including rent and debt, management fees, and contracted services.
