(3) partnerships with the kindergarten through grade 12 system, and other public, private,

(5) access to available school facilities, including the gymnasium, sports equipment,
computer labs, and media centers, when not otherwise in use as part of the operation of the
school. The school district may establish reasonable rules relating to access to these facilities
and may require that:

(i) the organization request access to the facilities and prepare and maintain a schedule
of proposed use;

(ii) the organization provide evidence of adequate insurance to cover the activities to be
conducted in the facilities; and

(iii) the organization prepare and maintain a plan demonstrating the adequacy and training
of staff to supervise the use of the facilities.

(c) The district may charge a sliding fee based upon family income for school-age care
programs. The district may receive money from other public or private sources for the
school-age care program. The board of the district must develop standards for school-age
child care programs. The commissioner of education may not adopt rules for school-age
care programs.

(d) The district shall maintain a separate account within the community services fund
for all funds related to the school-age care program.

(e) A district is encouraged to coordinate the school-age care program with its special
education, vocational education, adult basic education, early childhood family education
programs, kindergarten through grade 12 instruction and curriculum services, youth
development and youth service agencies, and with related services provided by other
governmental agencies and nonprofit agencies.
