THE DISTRICT MUST HAVE ACQUIRED A SITE BEFORE FINAL APPROVAL. FINANCING OF THE COLLEGES' MAINTENANCE, OPERATION, AND CAPITAL CONSTRUCTION WILL BE DONE ENTIRELY BY THE STATE EXCEPT FOR STANDARD TUITION CHARGED THE STUDENT, PLUS AVAILABLE FEDERAL AND OTHER FUNDS. THE DISTRICT MAY LEVY LOCAL TAXES TO SUPPLEMENT THE BASIC OPERATION OR CAPITAL FUNDS IF NECESSARY AND DESIRABLE. GUIDELINES FOR PROGRAM, FACILITIES, PERSONNEL, SIZE, AND LOCATIONS ARE INCLUDED.
