260B.060 COUNTY HOME SCHOOLS.
In any county or group of counties the county boards may purchase, lease, erect, equip, and
maintain a county home school for boys and girls, or a separate home school for boys and a
separate home school for girls. The juvenile court may transfer legal custody of a delinquent child
to the home school in the manner provided in section 260B.198. The county home school may,
with the approval of the district court judges in counties now or hereafter having a population of
more than 200,000, or of the juvenile court judges in all other counties, be a separate institution,
or it may be established and operated in connection with any other organized charitable or
educational institution. However, the plans, location, equipment, and operation of the county
home school shall in all cases have the approval of the said judges. There shall be a superintendent
or matron, or both, for such school, who shall be appointed and removed by the said judges. The
salaries of the superintendent, matron, and other employees shall be fixed by the said judges,
subject to the approval of the county board. The county board of each county to which this
section applies is hereby authorized, empowered, and required to provide the necessary funds to
make all needful appropriations to carry out the provisions of this section. The commissioner
of education, or other persons having charge of the public schools in any city of the first or
second class in a county where a county home school is maintained pursuant to the provisions
of this section may furnish all necessary instructors, school books, and school supplies for the
boys and girls placed in any such home school.
