This chapter summarizes and analyze all state supreme court and federal court decisions as well as other significant court decisions involving school property. The cases discussed are generally limited to those decided during 1974 and reported in the General Digest on or before March 1, 1975. In their discussion, the authors attempt to integrate related cases and to illuminate any unifying legal principles that underlie the decisions relevant to each specific subtopic of school property. Separate sections of the article focus in turn on cases involving school board authority over school property matters, ownership of school property, acquisition of school property, authority to locate and construct buildings, voting on school construction issues, zoning ordinances, contracts and bids for building construction, surety bonds, use of school property, and disposition of school property.
