72-1179. Special liability expense fund; uses of money. (a) There is hereby established in every school district a special liability expense fund. Moneys in such fund shall be used to:

(1) Pay the cost of providing for its defense and the defense of employees pursuant to the Kansas tort claims act and for the payment of claims and other direct and indirect costs resulting from the implementation of such act; and

(2) pay judgments rendered against the district.

(b) The district shall credit to the special liability expense fund any moneys received by the district from any source which may be lawfully utilized for the purposes specified by this section including the proceeds of tax levies hereinafter authorized and provided. Any balance remaining in the special liability expense fund at the end of the budget year shall be carried forward into that fund for succeeding budget years. Such fund shall not be subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-2925 through 79-2937, and amendments thereto. In making the budget of the district, the amounts credited to and the amount on hand in such special fund, and the amount expended therefrom, shall be included in the annual budget for the information of the residents of the district. Interest earned on the investment of moneys in any such fund shall be credited to that fund.

(c) Whenever the governing body of any school district determines that moneys from other sources will be insufficient to pay such costs, the governing body is hereby authorized to levy an annual tax upon all taxable tangible property within the district in an amount determined by the governing body to be necessary for such purpose and to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued by cities under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, for the financing of redevelopment projects upon property located in such school district.
