Attorney / Auditor / Negotiator
The School Board may use the services of attorneys, auditors, and negotiators to meet the needs of the district. The attorney chosen to represent the School Board, the firm who audits the school district and the services of the negotiator for employee contracts, are hired by the school district and represent the Board.
The legal counsel shall render legal advice to the Superintendent or designee and the Board and perform other administrative duties as assigned by the Board and Superintendent or designee. The Superintendent or designee may confer with the district's legal counsel at his/her discretion.
Ketchikan Gateway Borough code allows for the municipal attorney to act as a legal advisor to the Board and school district officials on a case by case basis, and under certain circumstances. The District agrees to contact the Borough’s attorney only through the Superintendent. If the Superintendent is unavailable or there is a question by the Board regarding the Superintendent, contact will then be made by the Board president.
