Are faculty salaries subject to the Public Records Law?Yes. The opening line of the public records law defines public records as -all documents ... made or received. It is significantly broad. If it is made or received by the charter school (i.e., salary run of x dollars to y person), then it is public.

Any record made or received by the charter school is a public record unless specifically shielded by the Public Records Law.Public Records Law
