Division of city school district into school election districts; elections held in schoolhouses
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 2, ARTICLE 53
§ 2604. Division of city school district into school election
districts; elections held in schoolhouses. The board of education of
each city school district shall adopt a resolution on or before the
first day of April, preceding the first annual school election held
hereunder, dividing the city school district into school election
districts. The city school district shall be so divided that if
circumstances will permit, school election districts will be coterminous
with one or more general election districts, and that, if practicable,
there shall be a schoolhouse in each election district. The election
districts thus formed shall continue in existence until modified by
resolution of the board of education. Such resolution shall accurately
describe the boundaries of such election districts by streets, alleys
and highways, when practicable. School elections shall be held in such
school election districts so far as may be possible in the public
schoolhouses therein. If there is no public schoolhouse in a school
election district, the board of education shall by resolution designate
the place where the election in such district shall be held.
Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, the board of
education of any city school district of a city of less than ten
thousand inhabitants may, by resolution, designate the entire city
school district as a single school district.
