    Sec. 12-13. Bond issue - Resolution - Election. If there has been a delay in the extension and collection of taxes levied by the governing body of any nonhigh school district caused by a reassessment of real property therein, the district may issue bonds for the purpose of paying unpaid tuition claims or other claims against it.
    Before any nonhigh school district issues any such bonds the board of education shall examine and consider the claims proposed to be paid, and if it appears that they were authorized and allowed for proper nonhigh school purposes, it shall adopt a resolution so declaring and set forth and describe in detail such claims. The adoption of the resolution shall establish the validity thereof. The resolution shall also declare the intention of the nonhigh school district to issue bonds for the purpose of paying such claims and direct that notice of such intention be published at least once in a newspaper published and having a general circulation in the district, if there be one, but if there is no newspaper published in such district then by publishing such notice in a newspaper having a general circulation in the district or if no newspaper is published in the district in one or more newspapers with a general circulation in the district. The notice shall include a statement of (1) the specific number of voters required to sign a petition requesting that the question of the adoption of the resolution be submitted to the electors of the district; (2) the time in which the petition must be filed; and (3) the date of the prospective referendum. The recording officer of the district shall provide a petition form to any individual requesting one. If within 30 days after the publication a petition is filed with the recording officer of the district, signed by voters of the district equal to 10% or more of the registered voters of the district, requesting that the proposition to issue the bonds be submitted to the voters thereof, then such district shall not be authorized to issue them until either the petition has been determined to be invalid or insufficient or the proposition has been submitted to and approved by a majority of the voters voting on the proposition at a regular scheduled election. The board shall certify the proposition to the proper election authorities for submission in accordance with the general election law. If no such petition is filed, or if any and all petitions filed are invalid, such district may issue the bonds. In addition to the requirements of the general election law the notice of the election shall set forth the intention of the district to issue bonds under the provisions of this Section. The ballot to be used at the election shall be in substantially the following form:
    Shall the Board of Education
