center or alternative learning program must reserve revenue in an amount equal to at least
90 and not more than 100 percent of the district average general education revenue per pupil

necessary for graduation. Average daily membership for a pupil shall equal the number of
hours of teacher contact time and independent study time divided by 1,020.

(iv) For a state-approved alternative program having an independent study component,
the commissioner shall require a description of the courses in the program, the kinds of
independent study involved, the expected learning outcomes of the courses, and the means
of measuring student performance against the expected outcomes.
