(a) In each fiscal year, commencing with the 2012 fiscal year, each community college, technical college and the Washburn institute of technology is eligible for postsecondary tiered technical education state aid from the state general fund for postsecondary tiered technical course credit hours approved by the state board and delivered by the institution to students who are residents of the state of Kansas, in an amount to be determined by the state board using a credit hour cost calculation model that: (1) Is tiered to recognize and support cost differentials in providing high-demand, high-tech training; (2) takes into consideration target industries critical to the Kansas economy; (3) is responsive to program growth; (4) takes into consideration local taxing authority for credit hours generated by in-district students; and (5) includes other factors and considerations as deemed necessary or advisable by the state board. The state board shall establish the rates to be used as the state’s share in a given year, as well as in the actual distribution.
