 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
 by  the  board  of  cooperative  educational  services and the component
 school districts receiving such services but in no case shall such rates
 result  in  extraordinary  costs  assigned  to  such  component   school
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
