Sec. 2.

Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 126C.01, is amended by adding a subdivision
to read:


Subd. 12.

Approved recovery program.

"Approved recovery program" means
a course of instruction offered by a recovery school that provides academic services,
assistance with recovery, and continuing care to students recovering from substance abuse
or dependency. A recovery program may be offered in a transitional academic setting
designed to meet graduation requirements. A recovery program must be approved by the
commissioner of education. The commissioner may specify the manner and form of the
application for the approval of a recovery school or recovery program.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective the day following final enactment.

Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 126C.05, subdivision 8, is amended to read:


Subd. 8.

Average daily membership.

(a) Membership for pupils in grades
kindergarten through 12 and for prekindergarten pupils with disabilities shall mean the
number of pupils on the current roll of the school, counted from the date of entry until
withdrawal. The date of withdrawal shall mean the day the pupil permanently leaves
the school or the date it is officially known that the pupil has left or has been legally
excused. However, a pupil, regardless of age, who has been absent from school for 15
consecutive school days during the regular school year or for five consecutive school days
during summer school or intersession classes of flexible school year programs without
receiving instruction in the home or hospital shall be dropped from the roll and classified
as withdrawn. Nothing in this section shall be construed as waiving the compulsory
attendance provisions cited in section 120A.22. Average daily membership equals the
sum for all pupils of the number of days of the school year each pupil is enrolled in the
district's schools divided by the number of days the schools are in session. Days of
summer school or intersession classes of flexible school year programs are only included
in the computation of membership for pupils with a disability not appropriately served
primarily in the regular classroom.

(b) A student, other than a pupil in an approved recovery program, must not be
counted as more than 1.2 pupils in average daily membership under this section. When the
initial total average daily membership exceeds 1.2 for a pupil enrolled in more than one
school district during the fiscal year, each district's average daily membership must be
reduced proportionately.

(c) A student in an approved recovery program must not be counted as more than 1.7
pupils in average daily membership under this section. When the initial total average daily
membership exceeds 1.7 for a pupil enrolled in more than one school district during the
fiscal year, each district's average daily membership must be reduced proportionately.

(b) (d) A student must not be counted as more than one pupil in average daily
membership except for purposes of section 126C.10, subdivision subdivisions 2a and 2d.

EFFECTIVE DATE.

This section is effective for revenue for fiscal years 2014
