Q What is the procedure which governing authorities are to use in making the determination of the amount of annual rental payments for sixteenth section land?

A The board of education, under the general supervision of the Secretary of State, has control and jurisdiction of sixteenth section land, and has the duty as trustee to ensure that adequate compensation is received for its use. The rental values as determined by the board of education are subject to approval by the board of supervisors, and, in cases of conflict, to administrative review and subsequent appeal to the chancery court.
