ANALYSIS

 

This bill requires a cooperative school district to transfer land and buildings to a withdrawing district provided the property is used primarily by the withdrawing district and the transfer does not result in a capital expenditure for the cooperative district.

 

The bill also provides for contributions by the withdrawing district to the cooperative district when the loss of the property results in a significant capital expense.
