CONCORD -- The Mt. Diablo school board expects to appoint a new general counsel Wednesday and to ratify a contract with Local 1 maintenance and operations workers.

In addition, trustees will select a president and vice president during the annual reorganization meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the district office at 1936 Carlotta Drive.

The board has contracted with Interim General Counsel Jayne Williams since it terminated the former general counsel's contract a year early. The board may decide to change the general counsel's reporting structure so the appointee reports to the superintendent and not directly to the board, according to a staff report.

More information about the meeting is available by calling 925-682-8000 ext. 4000 or by visiting http://esbpublic.mdusd.k12.ca.us. Click on Dec. 11 and "regular board meeting."
