Upon proposal by the board of trustees of a technical college district, the board of trustees of a state university, or both, and upon approval of the establishment of a state community college district by the Ohio board of regents, an agreement between the board of trustees of the proposing technical college district, state university, or both, and the Ohio board of regents shall be entered into to effect the transition of the technical college district's technical college or of a university branch, or both, to a state community college. The agreement shall designate the county or counties to be included in the district and shall include provision therein for the transfer of assets and contracts, assumption or discharging of liabilities and obligations, the date as of which the transition shall be effected and the state community college district shall be created, and such other matters as are necessary or appropriate to the purpose. Nothing in the agreement may, or shall be construed to, affect the rights of holders or owners of bonds or notes issued pursuant to section 3357.11 of the Revised Code until the bonds or notes are returned or provisions therefor made. The agreement shall be entered into by the Ohio board of regents on behalf of the state community college district and is binding upon the college district and its board of trustees. The board of trustees of a technical college district shall not approve an agreement for the transfer of the district's assets unless it finds and determines that the agreement adequately provides for the achievement of the purposes for which the district was created and will be beneficial to the people of the district.
