Priorities based upon student population, location, and education needs will be established well in advance in order that proper locations for school sites might be acquired. Sites will be acquired in advance of construction to allow adequate time for the completion of topography studies and other preliminary work (i.e. traffic safety patterns). Eminent domain action for the acquisition of property for school site purposes will be executed only after negotiations fail and all other avenues to the solution have been exhausted.

To acquire a school site, the Board may exchange property with the state and any municipality or organized township or county within or partly within the boundaries of the school district under terms and conditions determined by the respective governing bodies.
