CA Educ Code Section 78021


The governing board of any community college district may establish, or with one or more community college districts may establish, contract education programs within or outside the state by agreement with any public or private agency, corporation, association, or any other person or body, to provide specific educational programs or training to meet the specific needs of these bodies.


The contracting community college district or districts shall recover, from all revenue sources, including, but not necessarily limited to, public and private sources, or any combination thereof, an amount equal to, but not less than, the actual costs, including administrative costs, incurred in providing these programs or training.


The attendance of students in these contract education programs shall not be included for purposes of calculating the full-time equivalent students (FTES) for apportionments to these districts, unless all statutory and regulatory conditions for generating FTES are met.
