Rock Hill Schools Information for April 2, 2008

Compiled by Elaine Baker, Rock Hill Schools Office

The Herald newspaper has submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to Rock Hill Schools, the City of Rock Hill, and York County government for a list of the names of all employees who make an annual salary of $50,000 and above. The district has provided the info as required by state law. Most likely the information will be posted on The Herald's web page.  Their sister publication, The State Paper in Columbia, has published government salaries, including those at Winthrop, for several years.
