(b) For school district and intermediate school district applications, the commissioner
must consider only those applications to participate that are submitted jointly by a
district and the exclusive representative of the teachers. The application must contain an
alternative teacher professional pay system agreement that:

(1) implements an alternative teacher professional pay system consistent with
section 122A.414; and

(2) is negotiated and adopted according to the Public Employment Labor Relations
Act under chapter 179A, except that notwithstanding section 179A.20, subdivision 3, a
district may enter into a contract for a term of two or four years.

Alternative teacher compensation revenue for a qualifying school district or site in
which the school board and the exclusive representative of the teachers agree to place
teachers in the district or at the site on the alternative teacher professional pay system
equals $260 times the number of pupils enrolled at the district or site on October 1 of
the previous fiscal year. Alternative teacher compensation revenue for a qualifying
intermediate school district must be calculated under section 126C.10, subdivision 34,
paragraphs (a) and (b).

(c) For a newly combined or consolidated district, the revenue shall be computed
using the sum of pupils enrolled on October 1 of the previous year in the districts entering
into the combination or consolidation. The commissioner may adjust the revenue
computed for a site using prior year data to reflect changes attributable to school closings,
school openings, or grade level reconfigurations between the prior year and the current
year.

(d) The revenue is available only to school districts, intermediate school districts,
school sites, and charter schools that fully implement an alternative teacher professional

charter school that received alternative teacher compensation aid for the previous fiscal
year must receive at least an amount of alternative teacher compensation revenue equal to
the lesser of the amount it received for the previous fiscal year or the amount it qualifies
for under subdivision 1 for the current fiscal year if the district, intermediate school
district, school site, or charter school submits a timely application and the commissioner
determines that the district, intermediate school district, school site, or charter school
continues to implement an alternative teacher professional pay system, consistent with
its application under this section.

is insufficient for this purpose, it may apply to the commissioner for building lease aid
for this purpose. The commissioner must review and either approve or deny a lease aid
application using the following criteria:

(2) the extent to which the lease conforms to applicable state laws and rules; and

(3) the appropriateness of the proposed lease in the context of the space needs and
financial circumstances of the charter school.

service, utility, or other operating costs. The amount of building lease aid per pupil unit
served for a charter school for any year shall not exceed the lesser of (a) 90 percent of

Subdivision 1.

Minnesota State Academiesnew text begin is described in this sectionnew text end.

(a) A pupil who is deaf, hard of hearing, or deleted text beginblind-deafdeleted text endnew text begin deafblindnew text end, may be admitted to
the Academy for the Deaf. A pupil who is blind or visually impaired, deleted text beginblind-deafdeleted text endnew text begin deafblindnew text end,
or multiply disabled may be admitted to the Academy for the Blind. For a pupil to be
admitted, two decisions must be made under sections 125A.03 to 125A.24 and 125A.65.

(1) It must be decided by the individual education planning team that education in
regular or special education classes in the pupil's district of residence cannot be achieved
satisfactorily because of the nature and severity of the deafness or blindness or visual
impairment respectively.

(2) It must be decided by the individual education planning team that the academy
provides the most appropriate placement within the least restrictive alternative for the
pupil.

(b) A deaf or hard-of-hearing child or a visually impaired pupil may be admitted to
get socialization skills or on a short-term basis for skills development.

new text begin (c) A parent of a child who resides in Minnesota and who meets the disability criteria
for being deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired, or multiply disabled may
apply to place the child in the Minnesota State Academies. Academy staff must review
the application to determine whether the Minnesota State Academies is an appropriate
placement for the child. If academy staff determine that the Minnesota State Academies is
an appropriate placement, the staff must invite the individualized education program team
at the child's resident school district to participate in a meeting to arrange a trial placement
of between 60 and 90 calendar days at the Minnesota State Academies. If the child's
parent consents to the trial placement, the Minnesota State Academies is the responsible
serving school district and incurs all due process obligations under law, and the child's
resident school district is responsible for any transportation included in the child's
individualized education program during the trial placement. Before the trial placement
ends, academy staff must convene an individualized education program team meeting to
determine whether to continue the child's placement at the Minnesota State Academies
or that another placement is appropriate. If the academy members of the individualized
education program team and the parent are unable to agree on the child's placement, the
child's placement reverts to the placement in the child's individualized education program
that immediately preceded the trial placement. If the parent and individualized education
program team agree to continue the placement beyond the trial period, the transportation
and due process responsibilities are the same as those described for the trial placement
under this paragraph.
