Board approves legal services

The Shoreline School Board approved an interlocal agreement with the Northshore School District to obtain the services of in-house general counsel Joseph McKamey of Northshore on a part-time basis. With the resignation of Debra Hillary, Shoreline’s executive director of legal services and labor relations, the district began discussions with Northshore. Northshore was looking to accommodate reduced budgetary capacity.

McKamey has served for school districts throughout the Puget Sound area since 1980 in this capacity.
