An Act concerning Washburn university; relating to determination of operating grant en-

titlements; amending K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 72-6503 and repealing the existing section; also

repealing K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 72-6503a and 72-6505.




Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:

Section 1. K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 72-6503 is hereby amended to read as

follows: 72-6503. (a) In each fiscal year, commencing with fiscal year

2001, the university is entitled to an operating grant from the state general

fund in an amount to be determined by the state board. The state board

shall:

(1) Determine the average amount of moneys from the state general

fund expended per FTE lower division undergraduate student in the

preceding fiscal year at the regional state educational institutions;

(2) (A) in the 2001 fiscal year, compute 50% of the amount deter-

mined under (1); (B) in the 2002 fiscal year, compute 55% of the amount

determined under (1); (C) (B) in the 2003 fiscal year, compute 60% of

the amount determined under (1); (D) (C) in the 2004 fiscal year and in

each fiscal year thereafter, compute 65% of the amount determined un-

der (1);

(3) multiply the amount computed under (2) by the number of FTE

students of the university. The product is the amount of the operating

grant the university is entitled to receive for the fiscal year.

(b) In each fiscal year, commencing with the 2003 fiscal year, the

university is eligible to receive a quality performance grant from the state

general fund. If the state board determines that the university has dem-

onstrated effectiveness in complying with its mission and goals statement

and has met or exceeded the core indicators of quality performance iden-

tified and approved for the university by the state board, the university

shall receive a quality performance grant in an amount which shall be

determined by the state board by computing 2% of the amount of the

operating grant the university received in the preceding fiscal year. The

computed amount is the amount of the quality performance grant the

university shall receive for the fiscal year.

(c) (1) For the purposes of this section, the FTE enrollment of the

university shall be based on: (A) Enrollment of students who are residents

of the state of Kansas; and (B) the greater of FTE enrollment in the

second or third fiscal year current fiscal year or FTE enrollment in the

preceding fiscal year preceding the fiscal year for which the appropriation

for the operating grant is made.

(2) As used in this section, the term regional state educational insti-

tutions means Emporia state university, Fort Hays state university and

Pittsburg state university and the term lower division undergraduate stu-

dent means a freshman or sophomore.

(d) Moneys received as state grants from the state general fund shall

not be expended for the purpose of expansion of graduate programs or

for the purpose of expansion of off-campus programs without the prior

approval of the state board.

Sec. 2. K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 72-6503, 72-6503a and 72-6505 are hereby

repealed.

Sec. 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its

publication in the statute book.

Approved March 28, 2000.
