AN ACT to clarify the role of the county commissioners in school building ACQUISITION.
The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
SECTION 1. G.S. 115C‑517 reads as rewritten:
"§ 115C‑517. Acquisition of sites.
Local boards of education may

within or without the local school administrative
unit; but no unit,
subject to the approval of the board of county commissioners as to the amount
to be spent for the site, as provided in G.S. 115C‑426(f). No school

boundaries, although other school facilities such as repair shops, may be
operated outside the boundaries of the local school administrative unit.
Whenever any such board is unable to acquire or enlarge a suitable site or
right‑of‑way for a school, school building, school bus garage or
for a parking area or access road suitable for school buses or for other school
facilities by gift or purchase, condemnation proceedings to acquire same may be
instituted by such board under the provisions of Chapter 40A of the General
Statutes, and the determination of the local board of education of the land
necessary for such purposes shall be conclusive."
