School district with operating levy below minimum value classified unaccredited, when--procedure for classification.

163.023. 1. Commencing September 1, 1997, a school district that has an operating levy for school purposes as defined in section 163.011, of less than the minimum value required by section 163.021, shall be classified as unaccredited by the state board of education and shall be deemed to be an unclassified school district for all purposes under force of law, pursuant to the authority of the state board of education to classify school districts pursuant to section 161.092, except that no school district shall be classified as unaccredited or deemed to be an unclassified school district pursuant to this section if such district is ineligible to receive state aid under section 163.031, exclusive of categorical add-ons, because the district's local effort is greater than its weighted average daily attendance multiplied by the state adequacy target multiplied by the dollar value modifier. No school district, except a district which is ineligible to receive state aid under section 163.031, exclusive of categorical add-ons, because the district's local effort is greater than its weighted average daily attendance multiplied by the state adequacy target multiplied by the dollar value modifier, may be classified or reclassified as accredited until such district has an operating levy for school purposes which is equal to or greater than the minimum value required by section 163.021. Beginning July 1, 1998, the state board of education shall consider the results for a school district from the statewide assessment system developed pursuant to the provisions of section 160.518 when classifying a school district as authorized by subdivision (9) of section 161.092. Further, the state board of education shall consider the condition and adequacy of facilities of a school district when determining such classification.

2. For any school district classified unaccredited for any school year, the state board of education shall conduct procedures to classify said school district for the first school year following.
