§ 349.28. Closing of school buildings.

 (a)  Notification. Any school district which closes a school building to ed- ucational use shall notify the Department prior to such closing. The notification shall include the reason or reasons for such closing and shall describe how the closing contributes to the orderly development of attendance areas.

 (b)  Approval. When Department approval is a prerequisite for the closing of a school building, such approval will be based upon its conformance to a long-range attendance area plan.

 (c)  Reimbursement. When a school district closes a school building upon which it is receiving school building reimbursement, the Department may—upon receipt of justification—authorize the continuation of reimbursement payments thereon. In the absence of such Department authorization, reimbursement shall cease following the amortization payment which next falls due. Should the building be reopened for use as a public school, reimbursement shall be reinstated for amortization payments which fall due following such reopening.
