< > Effective - 28 Aug 1992 bottom

  162.181.  Reorganization, procedure. — Upon receipt of a plan for the reorganization of districts in any county, the state board of education shall examine the plan.  The state board shall approve or disapprove the plan either in whole or in part.  If the plan includes any proposed district with territory in more than one county, the state board shall designate the county containing that portion of the proposed district which has the highest assessed valuation as the county to which the district belongs.  The county clerk shall be notified of the state board's action within sixty days following receipt of the plan by the state board.  If the state board finds that the reorganization plan is inadequate in whole or in part, it shall return the plan to the county clerk with a full statement indicating the parts thereof it has approved and its reasons for finding the plan or any part inadequate.  The county commission has sixty days to review the rejected plan or parts thereof, make alterations, amendments and revisions as deemed advisable and return the revised plan or part to the state board for its action.

(1960) Where two plans for reorganization of the county submitted by the county board had been disapproved by the state board, and election on a third plan which had been disapproved would be enjoined and an election on a proposed reorganization of part of the territory in the county prepared by the state board would be ordered. Glasgow Sch. Dist. No. 60, Howard Co. v. Marshall (A.), 333 S.W.2d 547.

(1962) Where four common school districts lying in one county had been included in reorganization plans of that county and another and the county boards were unable to agree as to their disposition, an organizational problem common to both county boards was presented which the state board had authority to determine, and on approval by the voters of the plan approved by the state board, that district became lawfully organized. State ex rel. Reorg. Sch. Dist. R-1 of Miller County v. Van Landuyt (Mo.), 359 S.W.2d 773.

1965) Fact that a school district came into being by reorganization under §§ 165.657 to 165.707 does not militate against fact that it is a town district. Shelby County R-IV School District v. Herman (Mo.), 392 S.W.2d 609

(1965) Section 165.010 was enacted in contemplation of §§ 165.657 to 165.707 and classifies public school districts organized under any of the laws of the state into four classes (common, consolidated, town and city). Sections 165.657 to 165.707 do not expressly, or by implication, create a new fifth class of school districts, actually or by name. Shelby County R-IV School District v. Herman (Mo.), 392 S.W.2d 609.
