Subdivision 1.

Nonresident tuition rate; other costs.

(a) For fiscal year 2006,
when a school district provides instruction and services outside the district of residence,
board and lodging, and any tuition to be paid, shall be paid by the district of residence.
The tuition rate to be charged for any child with a disability, excluding a pupil for whom
tuition is calculated according to section 127A.47, subdivision 7, paragraph (d), must be
the sum of (1) the actual cost of providing special instruction and services to the child
including a proportionate amount for special transportation and unreimbursed building
lease and debt service costs for facilities used primarily for special education, plus (2)
the amount of general education revenue and referendum aid attributable to the pupil,
minus (3) the amount of special education aid for children with a disability received
on behalf of that child, minus (4) if the pupil receives special instruction and services
outside the regular classroom for more than 60 percent of the school day, the amount of
general education revenue and referendum aid, excluding portions attributable to district
and school administration, district support services, operations and maintenance, capital
expenditures, and pupil transportation, attributable to that pupil for the portion of time
the pupil receives special instruction and services outside of the regular classroom. If
the boards involved do not agree upon the tuition rate, either board may apply to the
commissioner to fix the rate. Notwithstanding chapter 14, the commissioner must then set
a date for a hearing or request a written statement from each board, giving each board
at least ten days' notice, and after the hearing or review of the written statements the
commissioner must make an order fixing the tuition rate, which is binding on both school
districts. General education revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable to a
pupil must be calculated using the resident district's average general education revenue
and referendum equalization aid per adjusted pupil unit.

(b) For fiscal year 2007 and later, when a school district provides special instruction
and services for a pupil with a disability as defined in section 125A.02 outside the district
of residence, excluding a pupil for whom an adjustment to special education aid is
calculated according to section 127A.47, subdivision 7, paragraph (e), special education
aid paid to the resident district must be reduced by an amount equal to (1) the actual
cost of providing special instruction and services to the pupil, including a proportionate
amount for special transportation and unreimbursed building lease and debt service costs
for facilities used primarily for special education, plus (2) the amount of general education
revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable to that pupil, calculated using the
resident district's average general education revenue and referendum equalization aid
per adjusted pupil unit excluding basic skills revenue, elementary sparsity revenue and
secondary sparsity revenue, minus (3) the amount of special education aid for children
with a disability received on behalf of that child, minus (4) if the pupil receives special
instruction and services outside the regular classroom for more than 60 percent of the
school day, the amount of general education revenue and referendum equalization aid,
excluding portions attributable to district and school administration, district support
services, operations and maintenance, capital expenditures, and pupil transportation,
attributable to that pupil for the portion of time the pupil receives special instruction
and services outside of the regular classroom, calculated using the resident district's
average general education revenue and referendum equalization aid per adjusted pupil unit
excluding basic skills revenue, elementary sparsity revenue and secondary sparsity revenue
and the serving district's basic skills revenue, elementary sparsity revenue and secondary
sparsity revenue per adjusted pupil unit. Notwithstanding clauses (1) and (4), for pupils
served by a cooperative unit without a fiscal agent school district, the general education
revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable to a pupil must be calculated using
the resident district's average general education revenue and referendum equalization aid
excluding new text begincompensatory revenue, new text endelementary sparsity revenuenew text begin,new text end and secondary sparsity
revenue. Special education aid paid to the district or cooperative providing special
instruction and services for the pupil must be increased by the amount of the reduction in
the aid paid to the resident district. Amounts paid to cooperatives under this subdivision
and section 127A.47, subdivision 7, shall be recognized and reported as revenues and
expenditures on the resident school district's books of account under sections 123B.75
and 123B.76. If the resident district's special education aid is insufficient to make the full
adjustment, the remaining adjustment shall be made to other state aid due to the district.

(c) Notwithstanding paragraphs (a) and (b) and section 127A.47, subdivision 7,
paragraphs (d) and (e), a charter school where more than 30 percent of enrolled students
receive special education and related services, a site approved under section 125A.515,
an intermediate district, a special education cooperative, or a school district that served
as the applicant agency for a group of school districts for federal special education aids
for fiscal year 2006 may apply to the commissioner for authority to charge the resident
district an additional amount to recover any remaining unreimbursed costs of serving
pupils with a disability. The application must include a description of the costs and the
calculations used to determine the unreimbursed portion to be charged to the resident
district. Amounts approved by the commissioner under this paragraph must be included
in the tuition billings or aid adjustments under paragraph (a) or (b), or section 127A.47,
subdivision 7
, paragraph (d) or (e), as applicable.

(d) For purposes of this subdivision and section 127A.47, subdivision 7, paragraphs
(d) and (e), "general education revenue and referendum equalization aid" means the sum
of the general education revenue according to section 126C.10, subdivision 1, excluding

Subd. 9.

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 subdivision 11,
paragraph (a), 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 unit. 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 or may
state that the amount shall increase annually by the rate of inflation. For this purpose, the
rate of inflation shall be the annual inflationary increase calculated under subdivision 2,
paragraph (b). The 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. The 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." The notice
required under section 275.60 may be modified to read, in cases of renewing existing
levies at the same amount per pupil as in the previous year:

"BY VOTING "YES" ON THIS BALLOT QUESTION, YOU ARE VOTING
TO EXTEND AN EXISTING PROPERTY TAX REFERENDUM THAT IS
SCHEDULED TO EXPIRE."

The ballot may contain a textual portion with the 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 the anticipated
amount of tax increase in annual dollars for typical residential homesteads, agricultural
homesteads, apartments, and commercial-industrial property within the school district.

The notice for a referendum may state that an existing referendum levy is expiring
and project the anticipated amount of increase over the existing referendum levy in
the first year, if any, in annual dollars for typical residential homesteads, agricultural
homesteads, apartments, and commercial-industrial property within the district.

The notice must include the following statement: "Passage of this referendum will
result in an increase in your property taxes." However, in cases of renewing existing levies,
the notice may include the following statement: "Passage of this referendum extends an
existing operating referendum at the same amount per pupil as in the previous year."

(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 deleted text begin15deleted text endnew text begin 30new text end 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 after the results
of the referendum have been certified by the board, or in the case of a recount, the

for the purposes specified in this section. The maximum amount which may be levied
for all costs under this section shall be equal to $30 multiplied by the district's adjusted
marginal cost pupil units for the school year. The proceeds of the levy must be reserved and
used for directly funding the following purposes or for reimbursing the cities and counties
who contract with the district for the following purposes: (1) to pay the costs incurred for
the salaries, benefits, and transportation costs of peace officers and sheriffs for liaison in

dependency counselors to help provide early responses to problems. For expenditures
under clause (1), the district must initially attempt to contract for services to be provided
by peace officers or sheriffs with the police department of each city or the sheriff's
department of the county within the district containing the school receiving the services. If
a local police department or a county sheriff's department does not wish to provide the
necessary services, the district may contract for these services with any other police or

under sections 123A.05 to 123A.08, 124D.03, 124D.08, and 124D.68. The adjustments
must be made according to this subdivision.

(a) General education aid paid to a resident district must be reduced by an amount
equal to the referendum equalization aid attributable to the pupil in the resident district.

(b) General education aid paid to a district serving a pupil in programs listed in this
subdivision must be increased by an amount equal to the greater of (1) the referendum
equalization aid attributable to the pupil in the nonresident district; or (2) the product of
the district's open enrollment concentration index, the maximum amount of referendum
revenue in the first tier, and the district's net open enrollment pupil units for that year. A
district's open enrollment concentration index equals the greater of: (i) zero, or (ii) the
lesser of 1.0, or the difference between the district's ratio of open enrollment pupil units
served to its resident pupil units for that year and 0.2. This clause does not apply to a
school district where more than 50 percent of the open enrollment students are enrolled
solely in online learning courses.

(c) If the amount of the reduction to be made from the general education aid of the
resident district is greater than the amount of general education aid otherwise due the
district, the excess reduction must be made from other state aids due the district.

(d) For fiscal year 2006, the district of residence must pay tuition to a district or an
area learning center, operated according to paragraph (f), providing special instruction and
services to a pupil with a disability, as defined in section 125A.02, or a pupil, as defined in
section 125A.51, who is enrolled in a program listed in this subdivision. The tuition must
be equal to (1) the actual cost of providing special instruction and services to the pupil,
including a proportionate amount for special transportation and unreimbursed building
lease and debt service costs for facilities used primarily for special education, minus (2)
if the pupil receives special instruction and services outside the regular classroom for
more than 60 percent of the school day, the amount of general education revenue and
referendum aid attributable to that pupil for the portion of time the pupil receives special
instruction and services outside of the regular classroom, excluding portions attributable to
district and school administration, district support services, operations and maintenance,
capital expenditures, and pupil transportation, minus (3) special education aid attributable
to that pupil, that is received by the district providing special instruction and services.
For purposes of this paragraph, general education revenue and referendum equalization
aid attributable to a pupil must be calculated using the serving district's average general
education revenue and referendum equalization aid per adjusted pupil unit.

(e) For fiscal year 2007 and later, special education aid paid to a resident district
must be reduced by an amount equal to (1) the actual cost of providing special instruction
and services, including special transportation and unreimbursed building lease and debt
service costs for facilities used primarily for special education, for a pupil with a disability,
as defined in section 125A.02, or a pupil, as defined in section 125A.51, who is enrolled
in a program listed in this subdivision, minus (2) if the pupil receives special instruction
and services outside the regular classroom for more than 60 percent of the school day,
the amount of general education revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable
to that pupil for the portion of time the pupil receives special instruction and services
outside of the regular classroom, excluding portions attributable to district and school
administration, district support services, operations and maintenance, capital expenditures,
and pupil transportation, minus (3) special education aid attributable to that pupil, that is
received by the district providing special instruction and services. For purposes of this
paragraph, general education revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable to a
pupil must be calculated using the serving district's average general education revenue
and referendum equalization aid per adjusted pupil unit. Special education aid paid to the
district or cooperative providing special instruction and services for the pupil, or to the
fiscal agent district for a cooperative, must be increased by the amount of the reduction
in the aid paid to the resident district. If the resident district's special education aid is
insufficient to make the full adjustment, the remaining adjustment shall be made to other
state aids due to the district.

(f) An area learning center operated by a service cooperative, intermediate district,
education district, or a joint powers cooperative may elect through the action of the
constituent boards to charge the resident district tuition for pupils rather than to have the
general education revenue paid to a fiscal agent school district. Except as provided in
paragraph (d) or (e), the district of residence must pay tuition equal to at least 90 percent of
the district average general education revenue per pupil unit minus an amount equal to the
product of the formula allowance according to section 126C.10, subdivision 2, times .0485,

Criminal Apprehension on all individuals who are offered employment in a school and
on all individuals, except enrolled student volunteers, who are offered the opportunity to
provide athletic coaching services or other extracurricular academic coaching services
to a school, regardless of whether any compensation is paid. In order for an individual
to be eligible for employment or to provide the services, the individual must provide an
executed criminal history consent form and a money order or check payable to either the
Bureau of Criminal Apprehension or the school hiring authority, at the discretion of the
school hiring authority, in an amount equal to the actual cost to the Bureau of Criminal
Apprehension and the school district of conducting the criminal history background
check. A school hiring authority deciding to receive payment may, at its discretion, accept
payment in the form of a negotiable instrument other than a money order or check and
shall pay the superintendent of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension directly to conduct
the background check. The superintendent of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension shall
conduct the background check by retrieving criminal history data maintained in the
criminal justice information system computers. A school hiring authority, at its discretion,
may decide not to request a criminal history background check on an individual who holds
an initial entrance license issued by the State Board of Teaching or the commissioner of
education within the 12 months preceding an offer of employment.

(b) A school hiring authority may use the results of a criminal background check
conducted at the request of another school hiring authority if:

(1) the results of the criminal background check are on file with the other school
hiring authority or otherwise accessible;

(2) the other school hiring authority conducted a criminal background check within
the previous 12 months;

(3) the individual who is the subject of the criminal background check executes a
written consent form giving a school hiring authority access to the results of the check; and

(4) there is no reason to believe that the individual has committed an act subsequent
to the check that would disqualify the individual for employment.

(c) A school hiring authority may, at its discretion, request a criminal history
background check from the superintendent of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on
any individual who seeks to enter a school or its grounds for the purpose of serving as a
school volunteer or working as an independent contractor or student employee. In order
for an individual to enter a school or its grounds under this paragraph when the school
hiring authority decides to request a criminal history background check on the individual,
the individual first must provide an executed criminal history consent form and a money
order, check, or other negotiable instrument payable to the school district in an amount
equal to the actual cost to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the school district
of conducting the criminal history background check. deleted text beginNotwithstanding section 299C.62,

(d) For all nonstate residents who are offered employment in a school, a school
hiring authority shall request a criminal history background check on such individuals
from the superintendent of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and from the government
agency performing the same function in the resident state or, if no government entity
performs the same function in the resident state, from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Such individuals must provide an executed criminal history consent form and a money
order, check, or other negotiable instrument payable to the school hiring authority in an
amount equal to the actual cost to the government agencies and the school district of
conducting the criminal history background check. Notwithstanding section 299C.62,
subdivision 1
, the cost of the criminal history background check under this paragraph is
the responsibility of the individual.

(e) At the beginning of each school year or when a student enrolls, a school hiring
authority must notify parents and guardians about the school hiring authority's policy
requiring a criminal history background check on employees and other individuals who
provide services to the school, and identify those positions subject to a background check
and the extent of the hiring authority's discretion in requiring a background check. The
school hiring authority may include the notice in the student handbook, a school policy
guide, or other similar communication. Nothing in this paragraph affects a school hiring
authority's ability to request a criminal history background check on an individual under
paragraph (c).

Contract; duties.

All districts maintaining a classified secondary

school board. The authority for selection and employment of a superintendent must be
vested in the board in all cases. An individual employed by a board as a superintendent
shall have an initial employment contract for a period of time no longer than three years
from the date of employment. Any subsequent employment contract must not exceed a
period of three years. A board, at its discretion, may or may not renew an employment
contract. A board must not, by action or inaction, extend the duration of an existing
employment contract. Beginning 365 days prior to the expiration date of an existing
employment contract, a board may negotiate and enter into a subsequent employment
contract to take effect upon the expiration of the existing contract. A subsequent contract
must be contingent upon the employee completing the terms of an existing contract. If a
contract between a board and a superintendent is terminated prior to the date specified in
the contract, the board may not enter into another superintendent contract with that same
individual that has a term that extends beyond the date specified in the terminated contract.
A board may terminate a superintendent during the term of an employment contract for any
of the grounds specified in section 122A.40, subdivision 9 or 13. A superintendent shall
not rely upon an employment contract with a board to assert any other continuing contract
rights in the position of superintendent under section 122A.40. Notwithstanding the
provisions of sections 122A.40, subdivision 10 or 11, 123A.32, 123A.75, or any other law
to the contrary, no individual shall have a right to employment as a superintendent based
on order of employment in any district. If two or more districts enter into an agreement for
the purchase or sharing of the services of a superintendent, the contracting districts have
the absolute right to select one of the individuals employed to serve as superintendent
in one of the contracting districts and no individual has a right to employment as the
superintendent to provide all or part of the services based on order of employment in a
contracting district. The superintendent of a district shall perform the following:

(1) visit and supervise the schools in the district, report and make recommendations
about their condition when advisable or on request by the board;

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

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

construction are retired. For each subsequent year, the charter school is eligible for lease
aid equal to 50 percent of the maximum lease aid amount in paragraph (a) unless the
