Noticing there was no mention by the Aiken Standard of the Settlement Agreement between our school board and Sean Alford shortly after the news on his leaving the Aiken County Public Schools, we put in a FOIA request for it. Media lawyers and government lawyers know such settlements are public record and the media usually gets very prompt, if not immediate, access to such records. Not this time.
So we requested it and posted our request on-line and linked it to the Austin Rhodes Show FB page. Suddenly, we notice yesterday the Aiken Standard is reporting on it but is still not providing a copy of it for the general public.
We are. You can download and read the entire Settlement Agreement Here.
Also see his past Employment Contract and the three amendments to it Here.
