If the school board of any school district or the board of any educational service unit fails to timely file a copy of an approved contract, or contract amendment, for superintendent services or educational service unit administrator services with the State Department of Education as required in section 79-2403, the Commissioner of Education, after notice to the board president and either the superintendent or educational service unit administrator and an opportunity to be heard, shall direct that any state aid granted pursuant to the Tax Equity and Educational Opportunities Support Act to the school district or core services and technology infrastructure funds granted pursuant to section 79-1241.03 to the educational service unit be withheld until such time as the contract or amendment is received by the department. In addition, the commissioner shall direct each county treasurer of a county with territory in the school district or educational service unit to withhold all money belonging to the school district or educational service unit until such time as the commissioner notifies such county treasurer of receipt of such contract or amendment. Each such county treasurer shall withhold such money. For school districts that are members of learning communities, a determination of school money belonging to the school district shall be based on the proportionate share of property tax receipts allocated to the school district pursuant to section 79-1073 in addition to the other property tax receipts belonging to the school district. If the board does not comply with this section prior to October 1 following the school fiscal year for which the state aid or core services and technology infrastructure funding was calculated, the funds shall revert to the General Fund. The amount of any reverted funds shall be included in data provided to the Governor, the Appropriations Committee of the Legislature, and the Education Committee of the Legislature in accordance with section 79-1031.
