XLIV. (Form No. 60.)—Directions for Bonding a District.

1. There must be a regularly-called meeting of the board of education, of which meeting all the members must have had notice. At that meeting the board must decide on the amount of money thought to be necessary. If land is to be purchased, the board must decide upon the site or sites it thinks suitable. It must also decide upon the time for holding the district meeting, and the form of the resolutions to be inserted in the notices to be posted by the district clerk. Full minutes of the meeting must be kept.

2. The district clerk must post the notices ordered by the board at least ten days before the date of the meeting of the legal voters. The day the notices are posted must not be counted in the ten days. The notices must state the time and place of the district meeting, and all business that is to be acted upon. If land is to be purchased, the plot or plots thought to be suitable by the board must be described. Any description that will enable the legal voters to locate the plot is sufficient. The board may submit more than one site, if it thinks best, in which case all the plots must be described. The notices must also state the amount of money thought to be necessary. It is not necessary to divide the amount among the several objects. The notices must also state that the question of authorizing the board to issue bonds will be submitted. Not less than seven notices must be posted, one of which must be posted on each school-house in the district. It is not necessary that the notices state the number of bonds to be issued, the denomination of the bonds, or the time of payment. These items should be left to the determination of the legal voters.

3. The district meeting must decide the amount of money to be raised, and also decide what portion of the money so ordered shall be used for the purchase of land, and what portion for building and furnishing the school-house. The aggregate amount ordered raised must not exceed the sum named in the notices. The district meeting must also decide how many bonds shall be issued, the denomination of each bond, and the time of its payment. The meeting may reject all the sites offered, but cannot select a site not described in the notices calling the meeting. All

votes in the district meeting must be by ballot. Full minutes of the meeting must be kept.

4. The chairman must appoint two tellers to receive and count the ballots. At the annual meeting in March, if a tax or the issue of bonds is to be voted on, two ballot-boxes, with separate tellers for each box, must be provided, one box to be used for ballots for tax and bonds and the other for members of the board of education. The secretary must keep a poll-list of the voters and tally-sheet of the ballots as counted. The tally-sheet must be signed by the chairman and tellers. The poll-list, tally-sheet and ballots must be placed by the secretary in a sealed package, indorsed with the name of the district, the county in which it is situated and the date of the meeting. A statement of the result of the meeting must be signed by the chairman and secretary,. and, together with said package, forwarded to the County Superintendent within five days after said meeting shall have been held.

5. Two copies of the minutes of the meeting of the board, attested by the district clerk, two copies of the notices posted, attested by said clerk, and two copies of the minutes of the district meeting, attested by the secretary of the meeting, must be sent to the State Superintendent, one copy to be approved by the Attorney-General, and the other to be filed in his office. When it is intended to borrow the money from the State School Fund, an application must accompany the copies of the proceedings sent to the State Superintendent. Blank forms to be used for the copies of the proceedings to be sent to the State Superintendent may be obtained from the County Superintendent. In making reports, only such business as relates to the purchase of land, building and furnishing the school-house and bonding the district need be inserted in the copies of the minutes of the meetings of the board and legal voters. In the blank for the report of the proceedings of the district meeting, a resolution is inserted for the purchase of land; when land is not ordered to be purchased, this resolution should be crossed out in making the report.

6. The approval of the Attorney-General must be secured before bonds can be legally issued, whether the money is to be borrowed from the State School Fund or from private parties.
