(A) The board of education of any city, exempted village, or local school district may contract with the board of another district for the admission or transportation, or both, of pupils into any school in such other district, on terms agreed upon by such boards.
(B) The boards of two school districts may enter into a contract under this section to share the provision of transportation to a child who resides in one school district and attends school in the other district. Under such an agreement, one district may claim the total transportation subsidy available for such child under section 3317.0212 of the Revised Code or other provisions of law and may agree to pay any portion of such subsidy to the other district sharing the provision of transportation to that child. The contract shall delineate the transportation responsibilities of each district.
A school district that enters into a contract under this section is not liable for any injury, death, or loss to the person or property of a student that may occur while the student is being furnished transportation by the other school district that is a party to the contract.
(C) Whenever a board not maintaining a high school enters into an agreement with one or more boards maintaining such school for the schooling of all its high school pupils, the board making such agreement is exempt from the payment of tuition at other high schools of pupils living within three miles of the school designated in the agreement. In case no such agreement is entered into, the high school to be attended can be selected by the pupil holding an eighth grade diploma, and the tuition shall be paid by the board of the district of school residence.
