   (a) "Contract education" means those situations in which a
community college district contracts with a public or private entity
for the purposes of providing instruction or services or both by the
community college.
   (b) "Credit" refers to any class offered for community college
credit, regardless of whether the class generates state
apportionments.
   (c) "Noncredit" refers to courses that meet the criteria for
apportionment pursuant to Section 84757.
   (d) "Not-for-credit" refers to classes, including community
services classes, that are offered without credit and that are not
eligible for apportionments pursuant to Section 84757.



78021.  (a) The governing board of any community college district
may establish, or with one or more community college districts may
establish, contract education programs within or outside the state by
agreement with any public or private agency, corporation,
association, or any other person or body, to provide specific
educational programs or training to meet the specific needs of these
bodies.
   (b) The contracting community college district or districts shall
recover, from all revenue sources, including, but not necessarily
limited to, public and private sources, or any combination thereof,
an amount equal to, but not less than, the actual costs, including
administrative costs, incurred in providing these programs or
training.
   (c) The attendance of students in these contract education
programs shall not be included for purposes of calculating the

classes shall be selected and hired according to procedures existing
in a community college district for the selection of instructors for

classes shall be compensated in the same manner as comparable faculty
in the regular, noncontract education program. This subdivision does
not apply to faculty teaching in contract education programs
conducted outside California for the United States armed forces,

agreement.
   (c) Faculty teaching credit or noncredit contract education
classes shall be evaluated according to the procedures used for the
evaluation of faculty in the regular, noncontract education program.

shall be compensated in the same manner as faculty in the regular,
noncontract education program if the course meets the same standards
as a course in the credit curriculum. This subdivision does not apply
to faculty teaching in contract education programs conducted outside
California for the United States armed forces, unless the faculty
member is covered by a collective bargaining agreement.
   (e) Faculty teaching not-for-credit contract educational programs
shall be evaluated according to procedures specified in the contract
between the community college district and the public or private
entity to establish the program.
