§ 19-1903-A. Plans and procedures for establishing
(a) A proposed community college plan shall be submitted by the local sponsor in such form and containing such information as the State Board of Education may require. The plan shall designate the name of the proposed community college which shall be the “Community College of ____________________” or “____________________ Technical Institute,” stating the name of the local sponsor or area of such community college. If there are two or more members of the local sponsor, the plan shall include provisions allocating financial responsibility for the community college among the members of the local sponsor subject to the policies, standards, rules and regulations of the State Board of Education.
(b) The community college plan, when submitted by the local sponsor, shall first be approved by the governing body of each member of the local sponsor and shall be submitted by them jointly in all counties. School directors from school districts of the second, third and fourth class located in two or more counties may meet in convention and approve a community college plan for submission to the State Board of Education.
(c) Upon the approval of the plan by the State Board of Education, the governing bodies of the local sponsor shall appoint a board of trustees of the community college, as hereinafter provided, and, upon such appointment, the community college shall be considered established.
(d) A county board of school directors shall prepare a plan for establishing a community college when required by a convention of school directors from school districts within the county. Such plan shall indicate the school districts to be served by a community college. Thereafter, a convention of school directors from school districts within the proposed area of a community college shall be called to consider:
(1) The proposed plan.
(2) The question of authorizing the county board or county boards to sponsor a community college.
(3) The allocation of the cost of establishing and operating a community college.
Following such consideration, the school directors in convention may approve a plan to establish and operate a community college subject to the approval of the State Board of Education and to determine the share and formula for sharing operating expenses, capital outlay, debt service or lease payment to be borne by the school districts. School directors from the districts not desiring to participate in the establishment of a community college shall not be eligible to vote on any question placed before the convention.
Member districts shall share the cost of establishing and operating a community college.
