The State Board of Education is authorized and empowered to maintain an inspection
and engineering service deemed by it appropriate and necessary to reduce the hazards
of fire in public school buildings insured in the Fund as hereinbefore provided, and
to expend for such purpose not in excess of ten percent (10%) of the annual premiums
collected from the local school authorities. The State Board of Education is hereby authorized and empowered to cancel any insurance
on any school property when, in its opinion, because of dilapidation and depreciation
such property is no longer insurable. Before cancellation, the local board of education shall be given at least 30 days
notice, and in the event said property can be restored to insurable condition, the
State Board of Education may make such orders with respect to the continuance of such
coverage as may be deemed proper: Provided, that the findings and results of the
inspection of local school property by the agents of the Board shall be reported to
local boards of education and to the board of county commissioners of such units as
carry insurance with the State 30 days before budget-making time in order that all
school property shall be properly taken care of and made safe from fire hazards.
