How should a student participating in a Job Corps program be recorded in the AIM system?
The answer depends on the kind of program the student is pursuing through the Job Corps. EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT: The Office of Public Instruction considers the student still enrolled in the school if the school district has entered into an interlocal cooperative agreement with an accredited Montana Job Corps program under the provisions of MCA 20-9-707. In this case, the student should be receiving educational credits through Job Corps that can be applied toward a diploma. To record this student in the AIM system, on the official enrollment count dates, the student should be flagged as a Job Corps participant. Since the Office of Public Instruction considers the student to still be enrolled in the public school, the student should NOT be assigned an "Enrollment End Status" in the AIM system, and therefore, should not be assigned a "Dropout Reason." JOB TRAINING: If the school district does not have an interlocal agreement with the Job Corps program per the conditions of MCA 20-9-707, or if the student has left school to receive job training that does not include an academic component, the student should be assigned an "Enrollment End Status" of 330 -- "Enrolled in Adult Ed, or Military, No Diploma" with a "Dropout Reason" of 07 – "Job Corps or Similar Program." For further clarification, here is the text of MCA 20-9-707: Agreement with accredited Montana job corps program. (1) The trustees of a school district may enter into an interlocal cooperative agreement for the ensuing school fiscal year under the provisions of Title 7, chapter 11, part 1, with a Montana job corps program accredited by the northwest association of schools and colleges to provide educational or vocational services that are supplemental to the educational programs offered by the resident school district. (2) A student who receives educational or vocational services at a Montana job corps program pursuant to an agreement authorized under subsection (1) must be enrolled, for purposes of calculating average number belonging, in a public school in the student's district of residence. Credits taken at the accredited Montana job corps program must be approved by the school district and meet the requirements for graduation at a school in the student's district of residence, must be taught by an instructor who has a current and appropriate Montana high school certification, and must be reported by the institution to the student's district of residence. Upon accumulating the necessary credits at either a school in the district of residence or at an accredited Montana job corps program pursuant to an interlocal cooperative agreement, a student must be allowed to graduate from the school in the student's district of residence. (3) A school district that, pursuant to an interlocal cooperative agreement, allows an enrolled student to attend a Montana job corps program accredited as prescribed in subsection (1) is not responsible for payment of the student's transportation costs to the job corps program. (4) A student attending a job corps program may not claim the job corps program's facility as the student's residence for the purposes of this section.
