Public Laws of the State of North Carolina Passed in 1858-59 - Pages 68-70.

Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That the board of superintendents of common schools for the counties of Orange and of Wake, may permit the citizens of a portion of school district number twenty-seven in the former, or of number twenty in the latter county, to have one joint school on the following terms, to wit: The board of superintendents of Orange County may lay off into a separate district that portion of territory to be united with a portion of district number twenty in Wake, and the board of superintendents in Wake may lay off into a separate district that part of district number twenty to be united with district number twenty-seven in Orange, the portion so laid off shall be counted a separate district, the part in Orange being counted as a new and separate district of that county, and the part laid off in Wake being counted a new and separate district of the same. These two districts are to have three committee-men, and one school house, to be located by said committee-men, but in other respects they are to be considered as separate and distinct. The district having the larger number of children shall elect two committee-men, under the same rules and regulations as other committees are elected, and the other district shall elect one committee-man, under the same regulations. Each committee to wit: the one committee-man in one district, and the two committee-men in the other, shall report the number and the names of their children to the chairmen of their respective counties, like other committees, and the board of county superintendents of each county shall, in the division of the school fund of their respective counties, treat said district as distinct and separate, the one forming a district of Orange, and as such entitled to its share of said fund in the county of Orange, and the other forming a district of Wake, and to be similarly treated. The committee of said districts, consisting of three men in all, shall unite in selecting a teacher, and in locating, building, and repairing the school house, and shall give to the teacher, at the end of the school, two separate drafts, one on the chairman of Orange for the money due in that county, and one on the chairman of Wake for the sum there due; and said teacher shall make a return of his school, according to law, to each chairman, distinguishing between the children attending from the district of Orange and those of Wake County, and he shall have a teachers' certificate from the examining committee of each county, but shall not be required to keep a school register.

Sec. 2. Be it further enacted, That the chairman of the board of superintendents of common schools of Orange County, in the annual report to the general superintendent, shall report the said district in Orange as a distinct district, and the chairman of Wake, shall so act towards the said district in Wake.

Sec. 3. Be it further enacted, That this Act shall be in force from and after its ratification.

Ratified the 16th day of February, 1859.
