Kevin S. Reed, who has filled in as general counsel for the Los Angeles
Unified School District since officials fired their top lawyer 10 months
ago, was appointed to the post on Monday.
Reed, 40, an education law expert, will resign from the firm of Strumwasser
and Woocher. His salary will be $228,000 a year.
Reed's predecessor, Harold J. Kwalwasser, was dismissed last June.
