Education Code 2600-2603 Coastal School District Boundaries
EDUCATION CODE SECTION 2600-2603
2600. Every county superintendent shall inquire and ascertain
whether the boundaries of the school districts and community college
districts in his county are definitely and plainly described in the
records of the board of supervisors and keep in his office a full and
correct transcript of the boundaries.
If the boundaries of districts are conflicting or incorrectly
described, or if, by reason of the resubdivision of land or other
change of property lines, the location of the boundaries becomes
indefinite or conflicts with lines of assessment, the board of
supervisors may correct and relocate the boundaries to follow
definite, established property lines, conforming as nearly as
practicable to the general location of the former boundaries.
Where boundary lines are corrected or relocated, the relocation of
the new lines shall be made in such a manner that the majority of
the area of the parcel or property affected determines the district
in which the parcel or property is located. Nothing herein contained
authorizes the board of supervisors, in relocating the boundaries,
to substantially alter the former boundaries of school districts, or
community college districts.
2601. Whenever the boundary line of any school district or
community college district is described as being "to" or "from" the
ocean shore, such description means to or from a point three miles
seaward from the shore.
Whenever the boundary line of any school district or community
college district is described as being "along," "with," "by," or "on"
the ocean shore, such description means on a line parallel with and
three miles seaward from the shore.
Nothing contained in this section shall retroactively alter,
enlarge, diminish or otherwise affect the powers, jurisdiction,
rights, duties, responsibilities, obligations or liabilities of any
such school district or community college district.
2602. Whenever any school district or community college district
has been or is hereafter intersected by any county boundary line in
the formation of any new county, or in changing the boundary of any
county, and portions of the district then lie in different counties,
the district shall, by operation of law, constitute and become
established as a joint school district, at the time of the
intersection, unless otherwise provided.
2603. The county superintendent may, if he deems it necessary,
order a description of the boundaries of any district under his
jurisdiction printed in pamphlet form and pay for the pamphlets out
of the county school service fund.
