The Role of a School Board Attorney.
French, Larry L.
The role of the school board attorney is directly related to the role of the school administrator. Administrators must learn to use attorneys as sources of expertise and must continually have them on call to assure that problems are handled in a legally sound manner. It should be kept in mind, however, that attorneys are trained in the law and not in school administration and must, as a result, rely on administrators for information on policy and for facts. The school board attorney must know the district's policies and procedures in order to help develop procedures that meet the requirements of the law and of the manner in which the school district prefers to operate.
