§ 2-273. Apportionment by commissioners
In case the boards of school directors of the several school districts cannot make amicable apportionment and adjustment of their property, indebtedness and rental obligations to an approved school building authority, before or during the first school year beginning after any such change in their boundary lines is made, any one of such school districts may, at any time within the succeeding school year, present its petition to the court of common pleas of the county in which such school district is located. The court shall appoint three disinterested commissioners, residents and taxpayers of the county, not residing in either of the districts whose boundary lines are changed. Such commissioners, after a hearing, shall make a report to the court, making an apportionment and adjustment, according to the provisions of this act, of all school property, as well as indebtedness, and rental obligations to an approved school building authority, if any, to and among the several school districts from which or to which land has been taken or added, or which have been newly created, as the case may be. Said report shall state the amount, if any, that shall be due and payable from one district to another, as well as the amount of indebtedness, and rental obligations to an approved school building authority, if any, that shall be assumed by any district. Due notice of such hearing shall be given to the several districts interested as the court may direct.
