State agency orders release of charter school company salaries


By Pressley Baird

The state Office of Charter Schools is asking The Roger Bacon Academy to release employee salaries by June 27 in response to a complaint filed with the office earlier this month.

The request comes a week after the education management company, which has three charter schools in Southeastern North Carolina, released some employee counts and salary costs, but not individual breakdowns.

The information appears to omit salary information for administrators at the company’s Roger Bacon headquarters and its schools: Charter Day School in Leland; Columbus Charter School in Whiteville and Douglass Academy in Wilmington. Roger Bacon chief financial officer Mark Dudeck and public information officer Sawyer Batten have not responded to repeated requests for the more detailed information.
