It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights...at the schoolhouse gate...

Tinker v. Des Moines
U.S. Supreme Court 1969


The Office of the General Counsel

The Office of the General Counsel is responsible for providing proactive legal advice to the School Board,
Superintendent and School District on all legal matters relating to the operations of the District,
and for representing the School Board and Superintendent in legal and administrative proceedings.
The General Counsel advises the School Board at all School Board meetings. When the School Board
sits as a quasi judicial body deciding employee discipline cases and student expulsions,
the General Counsel advises the Board. A contract attorney has been designated to
represent the Superintendent’s position in such cases.

Vision Statement

The Office of General Counsel will be the benchmark for all school district legal departments by
providing the best legal service and representation to the School Board, Superintendent, and School District.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Office of General Counsel to provide the highest quality legal services to the
Escambia County School Board, Superintendent and School District by ensuring timely and
accurate legal advice and effective representation on all legal matters.
