The School Attorney: Selection, Duties, How To Work With Him.
Rapid social changes, political turmoil, and the expanded body of school legislation indicate the need for school districts to have access to competent legal services. A permanent position of school attorney is recommended to prevent legal entanglements for the school district. A school attorney would provide routine legal services, legal counsel, litigation services, representation in collective negotiations, and legal representation for school employees. He could also serve as a liaison between State and Federal legal agencies and the local board, and lend assistance in interpreting recent State and Federal legislation. Such an attorney should be selected and compensated commensurably with his training and experience. (RA)
