AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to establishing  a  young
  farmer apprentice program

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph gg of subdivision 4 of section 1950 of the educa-
tion law, as amended by chapter 301 of the laws of 1996, is  amended  to
read as follows:
  gg. (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a board of cooper-
ative educational services may provide training for employment to adults
on  a space available basis, with consideration given to occupations and
industries in demand, and establish reduced adult tuition rates for such
training. For the purposes of this section, training for employment  for
adults shall be offered through state approved sequences or parts there-
of  of secondary career education instruction. Adults may participate in
such instruction and be awarded certificates of completion, but they may
not earn credit based on  their  participation  towards  a  high  school
diploma.  Pursuant  to  section forty-six hundred two of this chapter, a
board of cooperative educational services  may  establish  such  reduced
rates for participation of adults provided that participation is limited
to  assigned instructional staff and currently used facilities in sched-
uled secondary career education programs, and provided further that such
rates may not be less than fifty percent of the tuition rates charged to
school districts for the participation of secondary students in the same
programs, unless waived by the commissioner based on application of  the
board  of cooperative educational services. This participation of adults
at reduced tuition rates shall be in accordance with terms  agreed  upon

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
