(A) Subsequent to program approval by the department of education, each participating district shall be reimbursed for its adult high school continuation program, using the following formula:
(1) The number of eligible students completing the course, or the average number of students enrolled and in attendance during the first four weeks, whichever is greater, shall be divided by twelve;
(2) The resulting proportion shall be multiplied by the number of clock hours of instruction offered in the class, with one hundred twenty clock hours being the basis for one credit; and
(3) The resulting number of hours of instruction shall be multiplied by ten dollars.
(B) The reimbursement for a course shall not exceed twelve hundred dollars.
(C) Reimbursement shall be made upon receipt of a voucher filed with the department of education, following completion of the program year.
(D) Tuition may be charged in an amount not to exceed the difference between the actual cost of conducting the course and the amount reimbursed by the state. However, tuition shall not be charged for the attendance of any student who is readmitted to school following expulsion or commitment to the department of youth services, is assigned to a program by the superintendent pursuant to division (C) of section 3313.531 of the Revised Code, and is entitled under section 3313.64 of the Revised Code to attend the schools of the district without payment of tuition.
(E) Students enrolled in courses of an adult high school continuation program shall not be counted in the average daily membership of the operating, or jointly operating, school district for foundation program payments.
(F) In the event reimbursement claims exceed the appropriation for adult high school continuation programs, funds will be prorated equitably among the participating districts.
