No prohibition against posting of political campaign signs within state rights-of-way. Fairfax County may enter into agreement with Commonwealth Transporta-tion Commissioner to enforce prohibition. Signs and advertising supporting individual’s candidacy for elected public office or other ballot issues are not subject to such agreement, unless they remain in place more than three days after election to which they apply.

When circumstances change, school board may revisit decision regarding consolida-tion of schools based on changed circumstances; unless amending or abandoning consolidation contributes to efficiency of school division, it is not proper factor for school board’s analysis. Whether planned consolidation or amendment or abandonment thereof contributes to school division efficiency is factual determination.
