A school board may establish, maintain, and supervise a student financial institution
which is not subject to section 6-02-01, 6-02-03, 6-03-67.1, or 6-06-05 or any other statute or rule that regulates banks, other financial institutions,
or currency exchanges. To qualify as a student financial institution, the student financial institution
must be operated as part of a high school educational program under guidelines adopted
by the school board, be advised on a regular basis by one or more state-chartered
or federally chartered financial institutions including credit unions, but not owned
or operated by a financial institution, be located on school premises and have as
customers only students enrolled in, or employees of, the school of which it is located,
and have a written commitment from the school board guaranteeing reimbursement of
any depositor's funds lost due to insolvency of the student financial institution. Funds of a student financial institution that meet the requirements of this section
are not school district or other public funds for purposes of any state law governing
the use or investment of school district or other public funds. For purposes of borrowing money, cashing checks, and taking deposits concerning
the operation of a student financial institution, the obligations of a minor have
the same force and effect as though they were the obligations of a person over the
age of majority.
