72-4480. Technical colleges; quality performance grants, eligibility and amount. (a) In each fiscal year, commencing with the 2012 fiscal year, each technical college, as defined in K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 71-1802, and amendments thereto, is eligible for a grant from the state general fund, in an amount to be determined by the state board of regents, for non-tiered course credit hours, as defined in K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 71-1802, and amendments thereto, approved by the state board and delivered by the technical college. The method of distribution of such funds shall be established by the state board after dialogue with the technical college presidents.

(b) No amount of grant under this section shall be based upon any credit hour for which the technical college is receiving or is eligible to receive postsecondary tiered technical education state aid in accordance with K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 71-1803, and amendments thereto. Only the credit hours of students who are residents of the state of Kansas enrolled in courses for postsecondary credit shall be considered for funding.

(c) The state board of regents shall identify and approve core indicators of quality performance for technical colleges and shall establish and implement a data management system that includes a process and format for collecting, aggregating and reporting common and institution-specific information documenting effectiveness of the colleges in meeting the role and mission thereof.

(d) One-half of the distribution of the appropriation for grants under this section to technical colleges eligible for such grants shall be made on August 1, and the remaining one-half shall be made on January 1 of each fiscal year, or as soon thereafter as possible. The state board shall certify, on or before July 20 and December 20 of each fiscal year, to the director of accounts and reports the amount due on August 1 or January 1, as the case may be, to each technical college eligible for a grant, and the director of accounts and reports shall draw a warrant upon the state treasurer in favor of the technical college for such amount. Upon receipt of the warrant, the treasurer of the technical college shall credit the amount of the warrant to the general fund of the technical college.
