This chapter summarizes recent state supreme court and federal court decisions involving school property. The cases discussed are generally limited to those decided during 1975 and reported in the General Digest as of March 1976. 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, attachment and detachment of portions of school districts, ownership of school property, acquisition of school property, authority to locate and construct school buildings, voting on school property issues, contracts and bids for building construction, use of school property, school closures, and disposition of school property.
