72-6421. Vocational education fund; use of money, unencumbered balance in fund. (a) There is hereby established in every district a fund which shall be called the vocational education fund. All moneys received by a district for any course or program authorized and approved under the provisions of article 44 of chapter 72 of Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, except for courses and programs conducted in an area vocational school, shall be credited to the vocational education fund. All moneys received by the district from tuition, fees or charges or from any other source for vocational education courses or programs, except for courses and programs conducted in an area vocational school, shall be credited to the vocational education fund. The expenses of a district directly attributable to vocational education shall be paid from the vocational education fund.

(b) Obligations of a district pursuant to lawful agreements made under K.S.A. 72-4421, and amendments thereto, shall be paid from the vocational education fund established by this section. If any such agreement expresses an obligation of a district in terms of a mill levy, such obligation shall be construed to mean an amount equal to that which would be produced by the levy.

(c) Any balance remaining in the vocational education fund at the end of the budget year shall be carried forward into the vocational education fund for succeeding budget years. Such fund shall not be subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-2925 through 79-2937, and amendments thereto. In preparing the budget of such school district, the amounts credited to and the amount on hand in the vocational education fund, and the amount expended therefrom shall be included in the annual budget for the information of the residents of the school district. Interest earned on the investment of moneys in any such fund shall be credited to that fund.

Any unencumbered balance of moneys attributable to appropriations by the legislature in the vocational education fund of a school district on June 30, 2012, may be expended in the school year that immediately succeeds such date by the school district for general operating expenses of the school district as approved by the board of education.
