3014-d. Teachers' rights as a result of a school district sending students to another district on a tuition basis pursuant to section two thousand forty of this chapter. 1. As used in this section, a "sending district" shall mean a school district which sends students to another school district on a tuition basis pursuant to section two thousand forty of this chapter, and a "receiving district" shall mean a school district which receives and provides the educational program for students from another district on a tuition basis pursuant to section two thousand forty of this chapter.
2. In any case in which a sending district sends such students to a receiving district, each teacher previously employed in the education of students by such sending district prior to the time that such sending district sends its students to a receiving district shall be considered an employee of such receiving district, with the same tenure status he maintained in such sending district.
3. If the number of teaching positions needed to provide the educational services required by such receiving district is less than the number of teachers eligible to be considered employees of such receiving district as provided by subdivision two of this section, the services of the teachers having the least seniority in the sending district within the tenure area of the position shall be discontinued. Such teachers shall be placed on a preferred eligible list of candidates for appointment to a vacancy that may thereafter occur in an office or position under the jurisdiction of the sending district and the receiving district similar to the one such teacher filled in such sending district. The teachers on such preferred list shall be reinstated or appointed to such vacancies in such corresponding or similar positions under the jurisdiction of the sending district or the receiving district in the order of their length of service in such sending district, within seven years from the date of the abolition of such office or position.
4. For any such teacher as described in subdivision two of this section for salary, sick leave and any other purposes, the length of service credited in such sending district shall be credited as employment time with such receiving district.
5. This section shall in no way be construed to limit the rights of any of such teachers described in this section granted by any other provision of law.
