Elimination of non-high school district.
The territory of the non-high school district or unit district not maintaining
a high school in existence on January 1, 1950 of any county having a
population of 500,000 or less shall be automatically eliminated from the
non-high school district or unit district, unless (1) the non-high school territory is
adjacent to a district created by a special Act whose boundaries are
required by such Act to be coterminous with some city or village or to a
district maintaining grades 1 through 12 and (2) has children in such
territory who customarily attend the high school of such district and
(3) has no school district operating grades 9 through 12 to which such
territory could be annexed without impairing the educational
opportunities of the children of such territory and in such case the
territory shall remain non-high school territory.
Any such non-high school district including any unit district not maintaining
a high school pursuant to the provisions of this Section shall pay tuition
for high school students at a rate to be mutually agreed by the boards of
education of each district affected.
When territory is eliminated from a non-high school district or unit district
not maintaining a high school it shall
be annexed by the county board of school trustees as provided in Section
7-27 of this Act.
Any non-high school district affected by such elimination and
annexation may continue to exercise all previously conferred and existing
powers pending final administrative or judicial affirmance thereof.
