Vacant school plant facilitiesLease by contiguous districtEligibility for funding assistance.

School districts shall be required to lease for a reasonable fee vacant school plant facilities from a contiguous school district wherever possible.
No school district with unhoused students may be eligible for state funding assistance for the construction of school plant facilities if:
(1) The school district contiguous to the school district applying for the state funding assistance percentage has vacant school plant facilities;
(2) The superintendent of public instruction has determined the vacant school plant facilities available in the contiguous district will fulfill the needs of the applicant district in housing unhoused students. In determining whether the contiguous district school plant facilities meet the needs of the applicant district, consideration shall be given, but not limited to the geographic location of the vacant facilities as they relate to the applicant district; and
(3) A lease of the vacant school plant facilities can be negotiated.
