72-1143. Teacherages. The board of education of any unified school district may acquire, purchase, construct, rent, operate and maintain suitable quarters for the use of its teachers. Such quarters may consist of real or personal property or both, and may be referred to as "teacherages." The acquisitions of such property for teacherages shall be by resolution of the board of education, which shall be published once in a newspaper of general circulation within the county or counties where such school district is located. If, within thirty (30) days after publication of such resolution, there is filed a petition signed by qualified electors equal in number to not less than ten percent (10%) of the electors who voted at the last general school election, demanding that such resolution be submitted to a vote of the electors in such school district, such resolution shall not take effect until submitted to a referendum and approved by a majority of the qualified electors voting thereon. Such referendum may be held at a special election called for such purpose or at the general school election. Any school district may dispose of any teacherage or any interest therein or part thereof as provided by law for other school property.
