If a school corporation maintains an approved vocational school, department, or classes in accordance with the rules adopted by the state board, and rules and standards adopted by the board of educational examiners, and the state plan for vocational education, adopted by the board for vocational education and approved by the United States department of education, the director of the department of education shall reimburse the school corporation at the end of the fiscal year for its expenditures for salaries and authorized travel of vocational teachers from federal and state funds. However, a school corporation shall not receive from federal and state funds a larger amount than one-half the sum which has been expended by the school corporation for that particular type of program. If federal and state funds are not sufficient to make the reimbursement to the extent provided in this section, the director shall prorate the respective amounts available to the corporations entitled to reimbursement.
The director may use federal funds to reimburse approved practitioner preparation schools, departments, or classes for the training of teachers of agriculture, home economics, trades and industrial education, distributive education, and for the training of guidance counselors.
