TRANSMIT TO SUCCESSOR
Each school officer, upon the termination of his term of office, shall immediately surrender to his successor all books, papers and money pertaining or belonging to the office, taking a receipt therefor.
Code, Section 2770.
Note: In the past, hundreds of copies of the School Laws of Iowa, have been lost or carelessly mislaid. As a result, it has required many extra copies. School officers should bear in mind that this is not personal property and should be turned over to their successors.
The Code of Iowa is copyrighted by the State; and permission to publish the sections contained herein has been granted by the State Executive Council.
Sec. 2794-a. Page 97, Line 18 should read “corporations shall not be formed."
The School Laws of Iowa, Section 2627-e, authorizes the Superintendent of Public Instruction, if he deems necessary, to cause to be printed every four years all school laws in force up to that time, with such notes, forms, rulings and decisions as may be of value to school officers in the discharge of their duties.
Each school corporation and each director is entitled to receive a copy for which the school officers are responsible. These copies are to be delivered to successors in office and it is, therefore, urged that special pains be taken to preserve them. The Department of Public Instruction does not furnish new copies of the school laws upon application, but school officers entitled to them must inquire of their county superintendents. School officers have no right to complain about the increase of taxes if they carelessly put this copy of the school law in some obscure place where it cannot be found at the proper time.
The explanatory notes printed herein have been prepared in accordance with recent legislation and the most recent rulings of the Supreme Court, Superintendent of Public Instruction and opinions of the Attorney General. References in most instances have been given which will indi. cate the source of authority and add value to their use. Those who desire additional information will find the Supreme Court decisions on file in every court house, which may be consulted upon application to the Clerk of the District Court. When more definite information is wanted the County Superintendent and the County Attorney should be consulted.
The appended decisions are those rendered by the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Only such decisions as involve the most important points in law are contained in the present volume. A careful reading of these decisions will often times give a clearer understanding of the laws.
The sections will appear in practically the same order as in the 1911 edition and the section numbers at the beginning correspond to the Code, 1897, and the Supplements. The recodification of our laws since the printing of the 1911 edition of School Laws has made it possible to give each section its proper number,
