Wouldn't "dilecto" have to agree with "schola" rather than "municipio"
in that case?
I don't think so - if "municipio dilecto" is an ablative absolute with
dilecto a perfect passive participle.
Ah yes, the ablative absolute. Having forgotten its very existence,
I failed to think of it. :-)
But, um, can an a.a. be connected to the rest of the sentence
in the way your proposals would require?
That's a very good question! In classical latin, probably not - but later
forms allowed all sorts of variations. As I imply, without a clear main verb
in this/these sentence(s), it's difficult to parse.
