(a) Whenever the district boundary board establishes a new district from districts already organized, the board of trustees of the newly organized district may draw its proportion of the public school funds for paying teachers or other legal school expenses from the school treasury of the district or districts from which it was separated until such time as the newly organized district receives its proper apportionment of school monies and taxes.  In like manner, any district that is established from two (2) or more districts may draw its proportion of the proper school funds for payment of teachers or other necessary legal school expenses from the treasuries of the former districts.

(b) All real and personal property of any district combined under this article shall be and become the property of the newly organized district.  All real and personal property shall be transferred or conveyed by operation of law unless otherwise provided in the approved proposal.  However, real property which was transferred in accordance with this subsection from a then existing school district to a newly organized school district and on which is located a structure used as a school which the district has closed or intends to close shall not be conveyed or offered for sale to any other entity unless the municipality in which the property is located is first offered a right to purchase the property.  If the municipality and school board cannot agree on a price for the property, the property shall be sold to the highest bidder at a public auction.
