CHAPTER 586

AN ACT MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE STANTON SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONSTRUCTING SIDEWALKS AND ACQUIRING THE NECESSARY RIGHTS-OF-WAY THEREFOR WITHIN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

WHEREAS, the policy of the State Board of Education established on February 27, 1967, precludes approval of off-school site sidewalks for inclusion in School Construction Bond Authorization Acts; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to the provisions of Section 2305, of Title 14, Delaware Code, the Stanton School Board of the Stanton School District has made a careful examination of the transportation facilities, the frequency of exposure to traffic hazards and the possible existence of mechanical hazards which might affect the safety of pupils in the district and has determined the need for sidewalks leading to the Stanton Elementary and Stanton Junior High Schools sites as hereinafter set out; and

WHEREAS, the State Highway Department and the State Board of Education after reviewing and considering the factors required by the provisions of Section 2305 of Title 14, Delaware Code, have indicated their approval in writing of this program for the construction of sidewalks leading to said school site; and

NOW,THEREFORE,
