    Sec. 10-22.22. Transportation for pupils-Tuition.
    To provide free transportation for pupils, and where in its judgment the interests of the district and of the pupils therein will be best subserved by so doing the school board may permit the pupils in the district or in any particular grade to attend the schools of other districts and may permit any pupil to attend an area secondary vocational school operated by a public school district or a public or non-public vocational school within the State of Illinois or adjacent states approved by the Board of Vocational Education, and may provide free transportation for such pupils and shall pay the tuition of such pupils in the schools attended; such tuition shall be based upon per capita cost computed in the following manner: The cost of conducting and maintaining any area secondary vocational school facility shall be first determined and shall include the following expenses applicable only to such educational facility under rules and regulations established by the Board of Vocational Education and Rehabilitation as follows:
        a. Salaries of teachers, vocational counselors, and
supporting professional workers, necessary non-certified workers, clerks, custodial employees, and any district taxes specifically for their pension and retirement benefits.
        b. Equipment and supplies necessary for program
        c. Administrative costs.
        d. Operation of physical plant, including heat,
light, water, repairs, and maintenance.
        e. Auxiliary service, not including any
transportation cost.
    From such total cost thus determined there shall be deducted the State reimbursement due on account of such educational facility for the same year, not including any State reimbursement for area secondary vocational school transportation. Such net cost shall be divided by the average number of pupils in average daily attendance in such area secondary vocational school facility for the school year in order to arrive at the net per capita tuition cost. Such costs shall be computed on pupils regularly enrolled in an area secondary vocational school on the basis of one-sixth day for every class hour attended pursuant to such enrollment. Provided, that the board subject to the approval of the county superintendent of schools may determine what schools outside of their district such pupils shall attend. This section does not require the board of directors or board of education of any district to admit pupils from another district.
