The legal voters in a Class I or II school district, when lawfully assembled, may adjourn from time to time, as may be necessary, to designate a site for a schoolhouse by a vote of fifty-five percent of those present and to change the designation of a site for a schoolhouse by a similar vote at any annual or special meeting. In any school district in which the schoolhouse is located three-fourths of one mile or more from the center of such district, such schoolhouse site may be changed to a point nearer the center of the district by a majority vote of those present at any such school meeting. In any school district containing more than one hundred fifty children five through twenty years of age and having a school board of five or more members, the schoolhouse site in the district may be changed or the purchasing of a new site may be directed, or both, at any annual or special meeting, by a fifty-five percent vote of those present at any such meeting. A schoolhouse site shall not be changed more than once in any one school year.
