NEBRASKA STATE NEWS.
The statu superintendent of public
instruction has otlieially promulgated
a number of important decisions affect
ing school interests in Nebraska. The
following is a synopsis of each.
1. There Is no statue requiring ihc payment
of school district orders in the order Ja which
il"-y it re drawn.
!J. A contract signed bv two nicinlicis of tho
district school hoard, without a meeting of
which all members have had due notice. Is the
Individual vuiiti-nrt of tho inenibcrr sl-ilni;
such contract. The contract with n timelier Is
made an exception to this. See I Neb. I, anil
111 .Vol). 70.
!l. When the board employs a man to teach
the school he has no rltflit, except by the con
sent of tho board, to put u substitute In his
place, and not even with tho consent of tho
hoard, unless .such substitute Is a lei'.illy quall
t. The minimum amount of school required
must be tatinht by a legally outillllctl teacher
In Dnler to entitle the district to lis share la
tho state apportionment. .
5. In connection with ihc new attendance law
It N held that ehlldr.;: have free school privil
eges la one school district only at one time. If
thev elect under the new act to attend outside
of their own district thev carry their share of
the state funds with them and forfeit for that
school year all their rights to free school prh
Ili'Kes In their own district. Thev tiiav not. un
der this act. alternate between two districts
and claim tights la both.
il. The Nobiaska statute authorizes thedruw
liiK'of Interest upon all "warrants Issued bv
the proper authorities of the stale, count v. cltv,
town or ether municipal subdivision l-,Htl.in
a county." Hut the supteme court has held
that the school district "is not strictlva munic
ipality.' and tint K'hool district otllcers are
not municipal otllcers. thus mahlni; It clear
that the statute does not authorize the pay
ment of interest on school district orders.
7. The action of the utters t an anpual meet
ing as to the amount of school to be held tho
foinliw vear is iinal and mav Tint be reconsid
ered at a special meeting. The board should
make provision for the holding of school
In accordance with said action, but la
cae the voters tit said meeting fail
to make provision for carrying on
said amount of school, and there I.s no district
money for this purpose, the. board is not pi r
Kotmlly liable for any loss of state apportion
ment which may result to the district bc'-uuso
of f.tlluie to hold the lcriulred minimum
amount of school. In case, such loss occurs be
cause of ncKleet upon the part of the district
board tho members of the board become per
sonally liable lo the district for the amount' of
s In measuring a district under the provl
ioiiHofthc new attendanco law the measure
ments should follow air lines, not section lines
l. The district text books are In the care of
the dlstilct board the same as other school tlls
ti let property, and are subject to the rcuul.i
tlons of the board as to their use by the pupils
at home and during vacations.
K). In legard to the disposition of a hum
which appears upon a petition for change of
school district boundary, when the person, so
named has chanced his mind and does not uMi
to appear upon tho petition or lemonstr.ince,
1 It Is held that th prron has entire right to re
move orirlvcuiitlinritv for the removal of his
name from the petition.
