FOKTY-SECOND LEGISLATURE-FIRST CALLED SESSION. 81
"Article 2698. EMERGENCY TRANSFERS. In case of
conditions resulting from public calamity in any section of the
State such as serious floods, prolonged drouth, or extraordinary
border disturbances, resulting after the scholastic census has
been taken, in such sudden change of the scholastic population
of any county as would work a hardship in the support of the
public free schools of the said county, the State apportionment
of any child of school age may, on approval of the State Board,
be ordered by the State Superintendent to be transferred to
any other county or Independent School District in any other
county; provided, that the facts warranting such transfer shall
be sent to the State Superintendent by the county or district
board of trustees of schools to which transfer is to be made with
a formal request for the said transfer before the first of August
of the year in which such unusual conditions occur. No application
for emergency transfers shall be granted unless the increase
in scholastic population, as evidenced by a list of pupils within
the scholastic age actually residing within the district not enumerated
in said district, and filed in the State Department of
Education is in excess of twenty per cent of the number of children
assigned to said district; including regular transfers, as
a result of the preceding census. The State Superintendent shall
in such case notify the County Superintendent of both counties
that final apportionment of school funds cannot be made under
these circumstances before August 15. All arrangements for
the said emergency transfers must be completed by the 15th of
August following the unusual conditions causing the emergency.
Children whose State funds are thus transferred to any county
shall be included in the number of children for whom the county
school apportionment of the said county is made."
SECTION 2. The fact that there are not adequate laws on the
Statute books of this State to take care of emergency transfers
creates an emergency and an imperative public necessity that
the Constitutional Rule requiring bills to be read on three several
days in each House be suspended, and the same is hereby suspended,
and that this Act shall take effect and be in force from
and after its passage and it is so enacted.
Approved August 17, 1931.
Effective August 17, 1931.
[NOTE: S. B. No. 62 passed the Senate by a vote of 31 yeas,
0 nays; passed the House by a vote of 106 yeas, 1 nay.]
