Eugene S. Werts. Esq..
Superintendent of Education,
Newberry. S. C.
Dear Sir: Replying to the com
munication from your county board
of education under date of Novem
u>Lr i8th, I beg to advise that this of
fice has recently expressed the opin
ion that the action of the boards ot
trustces in transferring students
from one district to ano'ier is re
viewable by the county board of ed
ucation: but I am disposed to think
that undcr the facts as stated in your
communication your board is with
out jurisdicfion now, for it seems
that the transfers have already been
made and accepted by the board of
trustees. In order that the matter
shall fall within the province of the
county board of education for re
view it would be necessary that some
notice of protest be made at the
time, and it is too late after the
boards have acquiesced in the trans
Yours very truly,
U. X. Gunter. Jr.,
From this opinion the trustees
must make protest as soon as the
transfer is made.
The following is the law on the
subject if transfers:
"Sec. 1214. When it shall so hap
pen that persons are so situated as
to be better accommodated at the
school of an adjoining school dis
trict, wheth.er special or otherwise, the
board of trustees of the school dis
trict in which such persons reside
may transfer such persons for edu
cation to the school district in which
such school is located: and the trus
tees of the school district where the
school is located 'shall receive such
prsons into the school as though
the- residcd in the district."
There does not seem to be much
discretionary power in this section
on the part of the trustees of the dis
trict to which the pupils are trans
