20-8-108. Provisions for indigent students. If a person to be sent to the Montana school for the deaf and blind is too poor to pay for necessary clothing and transportation, the judge of the district court of the district where the person resides, upon application of any relative or friend or of any officer of the county where the person resides, shall, if the judge considers the person a proper subject, make an order to that effect. The order must be certified by the clerk of the court to the superintendent of the school, who shall then provide the necessary clothing and transportation at the expense of the county, and upon the superintendent rendering proper accounts for the expenditures quarter-annually, the county commissioners shall allow and pay the accounts out of the county treasury.
