AS 14.14.120. Inoperative District.
- (a) When there are fewer than eight children eligible to attend elementary and secondary school in a district, the school
board may declare the district inoperative for that school year.
- (b) During the school year in which a district is inoperative, the school board shall perform those functions necessary to
preserve the financial integrity of the district, to preserve the property and assets of the district, and to otherwise
ensure against disruption of the continuity of the district business.
- (c) An inoperative school board shall, if practicable, pay the tuition and boarding costs necessary to enable the school
age children within the district to attend school in another district. If a child in an inoperative school district is
not attending school in another district, the department shall provide information on correspondence courses and other
materials and charge the school board of the inoperative district an amount equal to the actual cost to the department.
- (d) The terms of office of a school board are not affected by a declaration that the district is inoperative. However, new
board members may not be elected during the time a district is inoperative. In the event more than three terms expire
during the time a district is inoperative the functions of the school board shall be assumed by the assembly or council
until the district becomes operative. When the district becomes operative an expired school board term shall be filled
by the assembly or council until the next regular school election when a school board member shall be elected to serve
the balance of the term.
