One of our board members has volunteered some contracting services to the district, but I believe they would like to pay him for some future services. Is that legal and/or ethical?
A case by case analysis should always be performed. ORS 332.016 prohibits employees of a school district from serving on the school board. If a person is a true independent contractor to the district, they are not considered employees of the district and would not be precluded from serving on the school board.
