Summary: Ms. McCray is a first-year attorney who has volunteered her time at the District 3 days per week since January to determine whether she wants to be a school attorney. She has proven herself indispensible. She is skilled in legal research and has been trained over the last few months by the lawyers in the Counsel’s Office to conduct workplace investigations and employee training, respond to advice calls from schools sites, and address a myriad of other issues. Given the recent transitions of the General Counsel’s Office, the Associate General Counsel will be assuming some of the duties of the outgoing general counsel. Therefore, Ms. McCray’s services are required to back fill for some of the Associate General’s counsel’s duties such as assisting with workplace investigations, trainings, conducting legal research and taking basic advice calls from school sites.
Funding: General Fund
Fiscal Impact The contract is not to exceed $10,250 for Ms. McCray
