The salaries of two senior schools officials who are being reassigned by Superintendent S. Dallas Dance have been released.
Following a request made on Thursday, Baltimore County Public Schools spokesman Charles Herndon revealed on Monday that Assistant Superintendent of the Department of Human Resources Donald Peccia has a $158,652 annual salary and Chief Communications Officer Phyllis Reese receives $142,549 a year.
Herndon apologized to Patch for the delay, citing limited staff in the communications office.
Still, the school system responded much quicker in comparison to Patch's last salary request.
On March 11, 2011, county politics reporter Bryan Sears requested the salary of former Deputy Superintendent Renee Foose. Reese refused to provide the information.
More than a month later, on April 14, 2011, the school system's Executive Officer for Community Outreach Bob Barrett released the figure to Sears.
Unlike the school system, Baltimore County government has an employee salary database.
