Contracts for reimbursement between college districts
  • effect of high school student’s enrollment on school funding

(1) In the event of an agreement between two colleges to admit each other’s students, if the student seeking admission to the community college resides within that college’s district, no additional reimbursement shall be required from any college district. However, if the student does not reside within the district, a contract of reimbursement may be entered into between the district and any other district. The contract shall provide for reimbursement to the district for each student in an amount not to exceed the difference between the per student operating expense of the district and the amounts obtained from the student for tuition and fees and obtained from state and federal aid.

(2) By agreement of the contracting districts, the contracts for reimbursement referred to in subsection (1) of this section may provide that payments to the district be based on expenses of the district other than operating expenses. Such payments shall be in addition to the reimbursable amounts referred to in subsection (1) of this section.

(3) If a high school student enrolls in a planned program agreed upon by the school district and the community college during regular school hours, the community college may include the high school student in determining the number of full-time equivalent students for the purposes of ORS 341.626 (Distribution of state aid) and other laws governing the distribution of state and federal funds to such colleges. However, the school district in which the high school student resides is not obligated to make any adjustment in its report under ORS 327.133 (Reports by districts). [Formerly 341.525]
