STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION
33-122. Sanitation — Safety — Cooperation with other state agencies. The state board shall cooperate with the board of health and welfare in establishing regulations covering school building sanitation, sewage disposal, water supply, or other matters affecting the public health, as shall in the opinion of the board be required. It may cooperate with any other department of state government in any matter in which such cooperation will be of assistance in carrying out its duties.
Whenever the state board has reason to believe that any building used as a school building is so structurally unsafe, unsound, or deficient, as to constitute a hazard to the pupils attending thereat, it shall have authority to cause an examination of such building to be made by a competent engineer. The engineer making such examination shall report, in writing, to the state board, setting out in what respect such building is unsafe, unsound, or deficient, as aforesaid.
The state board shall transmit a copy of such report to the board of trustees of the school district wherein such building is situate, or to the governing body of any such school if it not be a public school, and the same shall be kept in the administrative office of such school district, or school, there to be available for public inspection. The state board shall also order and cause to be published a summary of such engineer’s report in at least one (1) issue of a newspaper having general circulation in the same school district, or in the area of the same school if it not be a public school.
