                         CHAPTER 42-H.F.No. 235 
           An act relating to education; allowing certain 
          districts to mail summaries of the school board 
          proceedings rather than publish them; amending 
          Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 123.33, by adding a 
          subdivision. 
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 123.33, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 11a.  [MAILING OF PROCEEDINGS.] If a school board of 
a district that has no newspaper with its known office of issue 
or a secondary office located within the boundaries of the 
district, and no newspaper that is distributed to more than one 
third of the residences in the district determines that mailing 
a summary of its proceedings would be more economical than 
publication of the proceedings and that it would adequately 
inform the public, it may mail a summary of its proceedings to 
each residence in the district that can be identified as a 
homestead from the property tax records and to each other 
residence in the district that the board can identify.  The 
county shall make the property tax records available to the 
board for this purpose.  The board shall keep a copy of the 
summary of the proceedings as part of its records.  The decision 
of a school board to mail summaries, rather than publish the 
proceedings under this subdivision shall be presumed valid, 
subject to challenge by a court action. 
    Approved April 30, 1987
