37.111.805 EXISTING BUILDING: CHANGE OF USE
(1) An existing building not currently used as a school may not be used as a school without the prior approval of the department or local health authority.
(a) When a proposal to use an existing building as a school involves physical modification, plans meeting the requirements of ARM 37.111.804(1) through (9) must be submitted to the department or local health authority for review and approval. If no physical modification is involved, the department or local health authority may waive the requirement for submission of plans if an inspection by the department or local health authority indicates that the proposed school meets the requirements of this subchapter.
(b) The use of modular or mobile buildings in response to temporary or permanent closure of the existing school facility, segments thereof, or classroom overflow may be granted a one-year written exemption from the requirements of ARM 37.111.804 by the department or local health authority. Plans to continue use of modular or mobile buildings past one year must be shared with the local health authority or department.
