A. Any person who is of legal age and a resident of Oklahoma, over the age of twenty-one (21) and under the age of twenty-six (26), and who has not completed the twelfth grade in school shall be given the same educational privileges and opportunities provided by law for children over the age of five (5) and under the age of twenty-one (21), upon submitting to the board of education of the school district in which the person resides evidence satisfactory to that board showing that during the time before he or she was twenty-one (21) years of age he or she was unable to attend school for a definite period or periods of time because of physical disability, or service in the United States Armed Forces or Auxiliary Organizations, by reason whereof it was impossible for him or her to complete the twelfth grade before reaching the age of twenty-one (21). Provided, further, the pupil shall be counted in the average daily attendance of the district where he or she attends school during the period of time provided for in this article for the purpose of calculating State Aid for the district.
B. Any resident of the state who is nineteen (19) years of age or older, who is not enrolled in any high school program, and who has not completed the twelfth grade may attend any adult high school completion program which is established by a school district and approved by the State Board of Career and Technology Education if such attendance has the approval of the district offering the program. Such attendance shall not be counted in the average daily attendance of the district unless the Legislature appropriates monies for adult high school completion programs. Such attendance shall not be counted to meet minimum numbers for accreditation of the school district involved, and such students shall not attend classes which are a part of the normal class structure of the district.
