Such resolution shall be voted on at a public meeting, notice to be given in the manner provided by RCW 28A.505.050
. Its introduction and passage shall require the vote of a majority of all members of the school district board of directors.
Any person may appear at the meeting at which the appropriation resolution is to be voted on and be heard for or against the adoption thereof.
Upon passage of the appropriation resolution the school district shall petition the superintendent of public instruction for approval to increase the amount of its appropriations in the manner prescribed in rules and regulations for such approval by the superintendent.
Copies of all appropriation resolutions approved by the superintendent of public instruction shall be filed by the office of the superintendent of public instruction with the educational service district.
