The State Board of Education is hereby authorized, empowered and directed to establish and provide for the construction of three new vocational trade schools in this state in addition to the trade schools heretofore provided by law, to be located at such places as will make such schools conveniently accessible to all areas of Alabama. The cost of constructing such schools shall be paid out of the proceeds realized from any bonds issued and sold by the State Board of Education or any other authority of this state for the purpose of financing the construction of public school buildings or from any other funds made available for the construction of trade schools. The first $750,000.00 made available for expenditure on trade schools through the issuance and sale of bonds shall be allocated to the State Board of Education for the purpose of acquiring land, constructing buildings, reconstructing, altering and improving existing buildings and building facilities, including the renewal and replacement of structural parts and for the procurement of equipment for the buildings so constructed, reconstructed or improved at the Decatur Trade School.
The new trade schools to be constructed and established pursuant to this section shall be maintained and operated in accordance with the provisions of this article.
