The board of education of a school district that is inaccessible from the mainland at some time of the year for any reason may purchase, erect, or rent, and maintain a residence for a principal or teacher, when in the opinion of a majority of the members of the board it is necessary to insure adequate personnel for the schools of such district. To provide a sum sufficient for the purchase price, the cost of the erection, or the cost of renting such residence an additional tax may be levied upon all the taxable property in the school district, in such amount as the board determines. The question of levying such tax, and the amount thereof, shall be separately submitted to the qualified electors of the school district at a general or special election. Twenty days' notice thereof shall be previously given by posting notice of such election in at least three public places in the school district. Such notice shall state specifically the amount to be raised and the purposes thereof. If a majority of all votes cast at such election upon the proposition are in favor thereof, the tax provided for shall be authorized. Upon authorization of the tax levy the members of the board may issue notes in anticipation of such revenues to mature in not more than two years from the date of issue and to bear interest at not more than four per cent per annum.
