125A.51 PLACEMENT OF CHILDREN WITHOUT DISABILITIES;
EDUCATION AND TRANSPORTATION.

The responsibility for providing instruction and
transportation for a pupil without a disability who has a
short-term or temporary physical or emotional illness or
disability, as determined by the standards of the commissioner,
and who is temporarily placed for care and treatment for that
illness or disability, must be determined as provided in this
section.

(a) The school district of residence of the pupil is the
district in which the pupil's parent or guardian resides.

(b) When parental rights have been terminated by court
order, the legal residence of a child placed in a residential or
foster facility for care and treatment is the district in which
the child resides.

(c) Before the placement of a pupil for care and treatment,
the district of residence must be notified and provided an
opportunity to participate in the placement decision. When an
immediate emergency placement is necessary and time does not
permit resident district participation in the placement
decision, the district in which the pupil is temporarily placed,
if different from the district of residence, must notify the
district of residence of the emergency placement within 15 days
of the placement.

(d) When a pupil without a disability is temporarily placed
for care and treatment in a day program and the pupil continues
to live within the district of residence during the care and
treatment, the district of residence must provide instruction
and necessary transportation to and from the treatment facility
for the pupil. Transportation shall only be provided by the
district during regular operating hours of the district. The
district may provide the instruction at a school within the
district of residence, at the pupil's residence, or in the case
of a placement outside of the resident district, in the district
in which the day treatment program is located by paying tuition
to that district. The district of placement may contract with a
facility to provide instruction by teachers licensed by the
state Board of Teaching.

(e) When a pupil without a disability is temporarily placed
in a residential program for care and treatment, the district in
which the pupil is placed must provide instruction for the pupil
and necessary transportation while the pupil is receiving
instruction, and in the case of a placement outside of the
district of residence, the nonresident district must bill the
district of residence for the actual cost of providing the
instruction for the regular school year and for summer school,
excluding transportation costs.

new text begin (f) Notwithstanding paragraph (e), if the pupil is homeless
and placed in a public or private homeless shelter, then the
district that enrolls the pupil under section 127A.47,
subdivision 2, shall provide the transportation, unless the
district that enrolls the pupil and the district in which the
pupil is temporarily placed agree that the district in which the
pupil is temporarily placed shall provide transportation.
new text endWhen
a pupil without a disability is temporarily placed in a
residential program outside the district of residence, the
administrator of the court placing the pupil must send timely
written notice of the placement to the district of residence.
The district of placement may contract with a residential
facility to provide instruction by teachers licensed by the
state Board of Teaching. For purposes of this section, the state
correctional facilities operated on a fee-for-service basis are
considered to be residential programs for care and treatment.

Referendum revenue.

(a) The revenue authorized
by section 126C.10, subdivision 1, may be increased in the
amount approved by the voters of the district at a referendum
called for the purpose. The referendum may be called by the
board or shall be called by the board upon written petition of
qualified voters of the district. The referendum must be
conducted one or two calendar years before the increased levy
authority, if approved, first becomes payable. Only one
election to approve an increase may be held in a calendar year.
Unless the referendum is conducted by mail under paragraph (g),
the referendum must be held on the first Tuesday after the first
Monday in November. The ballot must state the maximum amount of
the increased revenue per resident marginal cost pupil unitdeleted text begin, the
estimated referendum tax rate as a percentage of referendum
market value in the first year it is to be levied, and that the
revenue must be used to finance school operations
deleted text end. The ballot
may state a schedule, determined by the board, of increased
revenue per resident marginal cost pupil unit that differs from
year to year over the number of years for which the increased
revenue is authorized. deleted text beginIf the ballot contains a schedule
showing different amounts, it must also indicate the estimated
referendum tax rate as a percent of referendum market value for
the amount specified for the first year and for the maximum
amount specified in the schedule.
deleted text endThe ballot may state that
existing referendum levy authority is expiring. In this case,
the ballot may also compare the proposed levy authority to the
existing expiring levy authority, and express the proposed
increase as the amount, if any, over the expiring referendum
levy authority. The ballot must designate the specific number
of years, not to exceed ten, for which the referendum
authorization applies. new text beginThe ballot, including a ballot on the
question to revoke or reduce the increased revenue amount under
paragraph (c), must abbreviate the term "per resident marginal
cost pupil unit" as "per pupil."

information required in this subdivision and a question stating
substantially the following:

"Shall the increase in the revenue proposed by (petition
to) the board of ........., School District No. .., be approved?"

If approved, an amount equal to the approved revenue per
resident marginal cost pupil unit times the resident marginal
cost pupil units for the school year beginning in the year after
the levy is certified shall be authorized for certification for
the number of years approved, if applicable, or until revoked or
reduced by the voters of the district at a subsequent referendum.

(b) The board must prepare and deliver by first class mail
at least 15 days but no more than 30 days before the day of the
referendum to each taxpayer a notice of the referendum and the
proposed revenue increase. The board need not mail more than
one notice to any taxpayer. For the purpose of giving mailed
notice under this subdivision, owners must be those shown to be
owners on the records of the county auditor or, in any county
where tax statements are mailed by the county treasurer, on the
records of the county treasurer. Every property owner whose
name does not appear on the records of the county auditor or the
county treasurer is deemed to have waived this mailed notice
unless the owner has requested in writing that the county
auditor or county treasurer, as the case may be, include the
name on the records for this purpose. The notice must project

taxes." However, in cases of renewing existing levies, the
notice may include the following statement: "Passage of this
referendum may result in an increase in your property taxes."

(c) A referendum on the question of revoking or reducing
the increased revenue amount authorized pursuant to paragraph
(a) may be called by the board and shall be called by the board
upon the written petition of qualified voters of the district.
A referendum to revoke or reduce the revenue amount must state
the amount per resident marginal cost pupil unit by which the
authority is to be reduced. Revenue authority approved by the
voters of the district pursuant to paragraph (a) must be
available to the school district at least once before it is
subject to a referendum on its revocation or reduction for
subsequent years. Only one revocation or reduction referendum
may be held to revoke or reduce referendum revenue for any
specific year and for years thereafter.

(d) A petition authorized by paragraph (a) or (c) is
effective if signed by a number of qualified voters in excess of
15 percent of the registered voters of the district on the day
the petition is filed with the board. A referendum invoked by
petition must be held on the date specified in paragraph (a).

(e) The approval of 50 percent plus one of those voting on
the question is required to pass a referendum authorized by this
subdivision.

(f) At least 15 days before the day of the referendum, the
district must submit a copy of the notice required under
paragraph (b) to the commissioner and to the county auditor of
each county in which the district is located. Within 15 days

Subdivision 1.

To lease building or land.

(a) When an
independent or a special school district or a group of
independent or special school districts finds it economically
advantageous to rent or lease a building or land for any
instructional purposes or for school storage or furniture
repair, and it determines that the operating capital revenue
authorized under section 126C.10, subdivision 13, is
insufficient for this purpose, it may apply to the commissioner
for permission to make an additional capital expenditure levy
for this purpose. An application for permission to levy under
this subdivision must contain financial justification for the
proposed levy, the terms and conditions of the proposed lease,
and a description of the space to be leased and its proposed use.

(b) The criteria for approval of applications to levy under
this subdivision must include: the reasonableness of the price,
the appropriateness of the space to the proposed activity, the
feasibility of transporting pupils to the leased building or
land, conformity of the lease to the laws and rules of the state
of Minnesota, and the appropriateness of the proposed lease to
the space needs and the financial condition of the district.
The commissioner must not authorize a levy under this
subdivision in an amount greater than deleted text begin90 percent of deleted text endthe cost to
the district of renting or leasing a building or land for
approved purposes. The proceeds of this levy must not be used
for custodial or other maintenance services. A district may not
levy under this subdivision for the purpose of leasing or
renting a district-owned building or site to itself.

(c) For agreements finalized after July 1, 1997, a district
may not levy under this subdivision for the purpose of leasing:
(1) a newly constructed building used primarily for regular
kindergarten, elementary, or secondary instruction; or (2) a
newly constructed building addition or additions used primarily
for regular kindergarten, elementary, or secondary instruction
that contains more than 20 percent of the square footage of the
previously existing building.

(d) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), a district may levy
under this subdivision for the purpose of leasing or renting a
district-owned building or site to itself only if the amount is
needed by the district to make payments required by a lease
purchase agreement, installment purchase agreement, or other
deferred payments agreement authorized by law, and the levy
meets the requirements of paragraph (c). A levy authorized for
a district by the commissioner under this paragraph may be in
the amount needed by the district to make payments required by a
lease purchase agreement, installment purchase agreement, or
other deferred payments agreement authorized by law, provided
that any agreement include a provision giving the school
districts the right to terminate the agreement annually without
penalty.

(e) The total levy under this subdivision for a district
for any year must not exceed deleted text begin$90 deleted text endnew text begin$100 new text endtimes the resident pupil
units for the fiscal year to which the levy is attributable.

(f) For agreements for which a review and comment have been

excludes expenditures on stadiums.

(g) The commissioner of education may authorize a school
district to exceed the limit in paragraph (e) if the school
district petitions the commissioner for approval. The
commissioner shall grant approval to a school district to exceed
the limit in paragraph (e) for not more than five years if the
district meets the following criteria:

(1) the school district has been experiencing pupil
enrollment growth in the preceding five years;

(2) the purpose of the increased levy is in the long-term
public interest;

(3) the purpose of the increased levy promotes colocation
of government services; and

(4) the purpose of the increased levy is in the long-term
interest of the district by avoiding over construction of school
facilities.

(h) A school district that is a member of an intermediate
school district may include in its authority under this section
deleted text begin 90 percent of deleted text endthe costs associated with leases of administrative
and classroom space for intermediate school district programs.
This authority must not exceed deleted text begin$22.50 deleted text endnew text begin$25 new text endtimes the adjusted

authority is in addition to any other authority authorized under
this section.

(i) In addition to the allowable capital levies in
paragraph (a), a district that is a member of the "Technology
and Information Education Systems" data processing joint board,
that finds it economically advantageous to enter into a lease
purchase agreement for a building for a group of school
districts or special school districts for staff development
purposes, may levy for its portion of lease costs attributed to

zero) and the denominator of which is the sum of the numerators
for the municipality, county, and school district.

assessment in the grades 10 through 12 span for the 2007-2008
school year and later.

(b) The commissioner must ensure that all statewide tests
administered to elementary and secondary students measure
students' academic knowledge and skills and not students'
values, attitudes, and beliefs.

(c) Reporting of assessment results must:

(1) provide timely, useful, and understandable information
on the performance of individual students, schools, school
districts, and the state;

(2) include, by the 2006-2007 school year, a value-added
component to measure student achievement growth over time; and

new text end.

(d) Consistent with applicable federal law and subdivision
1, paragraph (d), clause (1), the commissioner must include
alternative assessments for the very few students with
disabilities for whom statewide assessments are inappropriate
and for students with limited English proficiency.

(e) A school, school district, and charter school must
administer statewide assessments under this section, as the
assessments become available, to evaluate student progress in
achieving the academic standards. If a state assessment is not
available, a school, school district, and charter school must
determine locally if a student has met the required academic
standards. A school, school district, or charter school may use
a student's performance on a statewide assessment as one of
multiple criteria to determine grade promotion or retention. A
school, school district, or charter school may use a high school
student's performance on a statewide assessment as a percentage
of the student's final grade in a course, or place a student's
assessment score on the student's transcript.

Credits.

A pupil may enroll in a course under
this section for either secondary credit or postsecondary
credit. At the time a pupil enrolls in a course, the pupil
shall designate whether the course is for secondary or
postsecondary credit. A pupil taking several courses may
designate some for secondary credit and some for postsecondary
credit. A pupil must not audit a course under this section.

A district shall grant academic credit to a pupil enrolled
in a course for secondary credit if the pupil successfully
completes the course. Seven quarter or four semester college
credits equal at least one full year of high school credit.
Fewer college credits may be prorated. A district must also
grant academic credit to a pupil enrolled in a course for
postsecondary credit if secondary credit is requested by a
pupil. If no comparable course is offered by the district, the
district must, as soon as possible, notify the commissioner, who
shall determine the number of credits that shall be granted to a
pupil who successfully completes a course. If a comparable
course is offered by the district, the school board shall grant
a comparable number of credits to the pupil. If there is a
dispute between the district and the pupil regarding the number
of credits granted for a particular course, the pupil may appeal
the board's decision to the commissioner. The commissioner's
decision regarding the number of credits shall be final.

The secondary credits granted to a pupil must be counted
toward the graduation requirements and subject area requirements
of the district. Evidence of successful completion of each
course and secondary credits granted must be included in the
pupil's secondary school record. A pupil shall provide the
school with a copy of the pupil's grade in each course taken for
secondary credit under this section. Upon the request of a
pupil, the pupil's secondary school record must also include
evidence of successful completion and credits granted for a
course taken for postsecondary credit. In either case, the
record must indicate that the credits were earned at a
postsecondary institution.

If a pupil enrolls in a postsecondary institution after
leaving secondary school, the postsecondary institution must
award postsecondary credit for any course successfully completed
for secondary credit at that institution. Other postsecondary
institutions may award, after a pupil leaves secondary school,
postsecondary credit for any courses successfully completed
under this section. An institution may not charge a pupil for
the award of credit.

Minnesota Statutes 2004, section 260C.201,
subdivision 1, as amended by Laws 2005, chapter 159, article 2,
section 16, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Dispositions.

(a) If the court finds that
the child is in need of protection or services or neglected and
in foster care, it shall enter an order making any of the
following dispositions of the case:

(1) place the child under the protective supervision of the
responsible social services agency or child-placing agency in
the home of a parent of the child under conditions prescribed by
the court directed to the correction of the child's need for
protection or services:

(i) the court may order the child into the home of a parent
who does not otherwise have legal custody of the child, however,
an order under this section does not confer legal custody on
that parent;

(ii) if the court orders the child into the home of a
father who is not adjudicated, he must cooperate with paternity
establishment proceedings regarding the child in the appropriate
jurisdiction as one of the conditions prescribed by the court
for the child to continue in his home; and

(iii) the court may order the child into the home of a
noncustodial parent with conditions and may also order both the
noncustodial and the custodial parent to comply with the
requirements of a case plan under subdivision 2; or

(2) transfer legal custody to one of the following:

(i) a child-placing agency; or

(ii) the responsible social services agency. In making a
foster care placement for a child whose custody has been
transferred under this subdivision, the agency shall make an
individualized determination of how the placement is in the
child's best interests using the consideration for relatives and
the best interest factors in section 260C.212, subdivision 2,
paragraph (b); or

(3) order a trial home visit without modifying the transfer
of legal custody to the responsible social services agency under
clause (2). Trial home visit means the child is returned to the
care of the parent or guardian from whom the child was removed
for a period not to exceed six months. During the period of the
trial home visit, the responsible social services agency:

(i) shall continue to have legal custody of the child,
which means the agency may see the child in the parent's home,
at school, in a child care facility, or other setting as the
agency deems necessary and appropriate;

(ii) shall continue to have the ability to access
information under section 260C.208;

(iii) shall continue to provide appropriate services to
both the parent and the child during the period of the trial
home visit;

(iv) without previous court order or authorization, may
terminate the trial home visit in order to protect the child's
health, safety, or welfare and may remove the child to foster
care;

(v) shall advise the court and parties within three days of
the termination of the trial home visit when a visit is
terminated by the responsible social services agency without a
court order; and

(vi) shall prepare a report for the court when the trial
home visit is terminated whether by the agency or court order
which describes the child's circumstances during the trial home
visit and recommends appropriate orders, if any, for the court
to enter to provide for the child's safety and stability. In
the event a trial home visit is terminated by the agency by
removing the child to foster care without prior court order or
authorization, the court shall conduct a hearing within ten days
of receiving notice of the termination of the trial home visit
by the agency and shall order disposition under this subdivision
or conduct a permanency hearing under subdivision 11 or 11a.
The time period for the hearing may be extended by the court for
good cause shown and if it is in the best interests of the child
as long as the total time the child spends in foster care
without a permanency hearing does not exceed 12 monthsdeleted text begin.deleted text endnew text begin;
new text end

(4) if the child has been adjudicated as a child in need of
protection or services because the child is in need of special
services or care to treat or ameliorate a physical or mental
disability, the court may order the child's parent, guardian, or
custodian to provide it. The court may order the child's health
plan company to provide mental health services to the child.
Section 62Q.535 applies to an order for mental health services
directed to the child's health plan company. If the health
plan, parent, guardian, or custodian fails or is unable to
provide this treatment or care, the court may order it
provided. Absent specific written findings by the court that
the child's disability is the result of abuse or neglect by the
child's parent or guardian, the court shall not transfer legal
custody of the child for the purpose of obtaining special
treatment or care solely because the parent is unable to provide
the treatment or care. If the court's order for mental health
treatment is based on a diagnosis made by a treatment
professional, the court may order that the diagnosing
professional not provide the treatment to the child if it finds
that such an order is in the child's best interests; or

(5) if the court believes that the child has sufficient
maturity and judgment and that it is in the best interests of
the child, the court may order a child 16 years old or older to
be allowed to live independently, either alone or with others as
approved by the court under supervision the court considers
appropriate, if the county board, after consultation with the
court, has specifically authorized this dispositional
alternative for a child.

(b) If the child was adjudicated in need of protection or
services because the child is a runaway or habitual truant, the
court may order any of the following dispositions in addition to
or as alternatives to the dispositions authorized under
paragraph (a):

(1) counsel the child or the child's parents, guardian, or
custodian;

(2) place the child under the supervision of a probation
officer or other suitable person in the child's own home under
conditions prescribed by the court, including reasonable rules
for the child's conduct and the conduct of the parents,
guardian, or custodian, designed for the physical, mental, and
moral well-being and behavior of the child; or with the consent
of the commissioner of corrections, place the child in a group
foster care facility which is under the commissioner's
management and supervision;

(3) subject to the court's supervision, transfer legal
custody of the child to one of the following:

(i) a reputable person of good moral character. No person
may receive custody of two or more unrelated children unless
licensed to operate a residential program under sections 245A.01
to 245A.16; or

(ii) a county probation officer for placement in a group
foster home established under the direction of the juvenile
court and licensed pursuant to section 241.021;

(4) require the child to pay a fine of up to $100. The
court shall order payment of the fine in a manner that will not
impose undue financial hardship upon the child;

(5) require the child to participate in a community service
project;

(6) order the child to undergo a chemical dependency
evaluation and, if warranted by the evaluation, order
participation by the child in a drug awareness program or an
inpatient or outpatient chemical dependency treatment program;

(7) if the court believes that it is in the best interests
of the child deleted text beginand deleted text endnew text beginor new text endof public safety that the child's driver's
license or instruction permit be canceled, the court may order
the commissioner of public safety to cancel the child's license
or permit for any period up to the child's 18th birthday. If
the child does not have a driver's license or permit, the court
may order a denial of driving privileges for any period up to
the child's 18th birthday. The court shall forward an order
issued under this clause to the commissioner, who shall cancel
the license or permit or deny driving privileges without a
hearing for the period specified by the court. At any time
before the expiration of the period of cancellation or denial,
the court may, for good cause, order the commissioner of public
safety to allow the child to apply for a license or permit, and
the commissioner shall so authorize;

(8) order that the child's parent or legal guardian deliver
the child to school at the beginning of each school day for a
period of time specified by the court; or

(9) require the child to perform any other activities or
participate in any other treatment programs deemed appropriate
by the court.

To the extent practicable, the court shall enter a
disposition order the same day it makes a finding that a child
is in need of protection or services or neglected and in foster
care, but in no event more than 15 days after the finding unless
the court finds that the best interests of the child will be
served by granting a delay. If the child was under eight years
of age at the time the petition was filed, the disposition order
must be entered within ten days of the finding and the court may
not grant a delay unless good cause is shown and the court finds
the best interests of the child will be served by the delay.

(c) If a child who is 14 years of age or older is
adjudicated in need of protection or services because the child
is a habitual truant and truancy procedures involving the child
were previously dealt with by a school attendance review board
or county attorney mediation program under section 260A.06 or
260A.07, the court shall order a cancellation or denial of
driving privileges under paragraph (b), clause (7), for any
period up to the child's 18th birthday.

(d) In the case of a child adjudicated in need of
protection or services because the child has committed domestic
abuse and been ordered excluded from the child's parent's home,
the court shall dismiss jurisdiction if the court, at any time,
finds the parent is able or willing to provide an alternative
safe living arrangement for the child, as defined in Laws 1997,
chapter 239, article 10, section 2.

(e) When a parent has complied with a case plan ordered
under subdivision 6 and the child is in the care of the parent,
the court may order the responsible social services agency to
monitor the parent's continued ability to maintain the child
safely in the home under such terms and conditions as the court
determines appropriate under the circumstances.
