Who was Sue Yount?
Sue Yount is a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who specializes in education law. Her expertise covers a broad range of areas, including employment, discrimination, labour relations, collective bargaining, grievance arbitration, unfair labour practice charges, school finance, special education, student discipline, private school matters, and school-age daycare matters. Throughout her career, she has provided exceptional representation to school districts across Ohio, handling legal matters related to all aspects of education law.
Additionally, Sue has played a pivotal role in several landmark cases, paving the way for positive change and setting educational precedents. As a member of the trial team for a public school funding prosecution, she successfully prosecuted four constitutional challenges to Ohio’s system of funding public schools on behalf of over 500 school districts, resulting in significant additional funding for school facilities.
In her role as a negotiator, Sue skillfully navigates collective bargaining agreements for both teaching and non-teaching units in public school districts. She is also an accomplished presenter at various education law seminars, including OSBA, BASA, OALSS, state support team programs, daycare provider workshops, and school in-service programs. Sue is survived by her husband of 32 years, Brant, and by her three children, Lydia (age 27), Caleb (age 25) and Rachel (age 18). She is also survived by countless colleagues and clients who knew her not only for her legal proficiency but also for her faith and kindness.
