STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Five

AN ACT relative to tuition contracts between schools.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

1 School Districts; Contracts With Schools. RSA 194:22 is repealed and reenacted to read as follows:

194:22 Short-Term Contracts.

I. Any school district may enter into a short-term contract with an academy, high school, or other literary institution located in this state or, when distance or transportation facilities make it necessary, in another state, and raise and appropriate money to carry such contract into effect. No short-term contract shall exceed 5 years in duration, and may be renewed in 5-year increments, provided the aggregate term of the contract shall not exceed 20 years. Such contracts may contain provisions for tuition and capital costs of providing an education. Voter ratification of short-term contracts is not required if the contract is approved by the state board of education. A school district seeking voter ratification of a short-term contract shall present such contract to the legislative body of the school district at the annual meeting or a special meeting called for that purpose. A majority of voters present and voting in the school district shall be required for approval of a short-term contract.

II. If the short-term contract is approved by the state board of education, the school with which it is made shall be deemed a high school maintained by the school district.

2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
