Cost Implications

  • Under the Expanded Options program, a student is considered a resident pupil of the school district. 
  • The school district must negotiate an agreement with the post-secondary institution to pay actual tuition, fees and other required instructional costs of the student. 
  • A resident school district of an eligible student shall enter into an agreement with an eligible post-secondary institution for the payment of the actual instructional costs associated with the student’s attending a nontuition course or noncredit course at the institution.
  • All textbooks, fees, equipment and materials provided to an eligible student and paid for by the school district are the property of the resident school district of the student.
  • A school district must spend a minimum of 50% of the districts general purpose grant per extended ADMw per student participating in the program.
  • The district may request a waiver if paying the minimum 50% would cause an “extreme financial distress” or if the district already offers dual credit or accelerated credit programs as long as those programs serve all qualified students and there are no charges for at-risk students.
  • Community colleges may not charge the student for tuition, fees and other required instructional costs if the college receives payment for the student from the school district.
  • The school district retains the requirement of providing special education and related services to the eligible student with a disability.
