Use of funds for equipment and supplies for vocational instruc

tion. (a) Under the George-Barden Act funds may be used for the purchase or rental of equipment and supplies for vocational instruction: Provided, however, That under title I, not more than 10 percent of the amount appropriated for each of the fields may be used for the purchase or rental of equipment.

(b) “Equipment or supplies for vocational instruction" means equipment or supplies used by vocational teachers and teacher trainers in instructing, or by their students in learning, in an instructional situation in the classroom, laboratory, shop, or field. It may not include supplies to be made into equipment or products to be sold, or to be used by pupils, teachers, or other persons for individual, family, general school, or business purposes; except that supplies made into equipment for vocational instruction may be considered as equipment for instruction under the same conditions as apply to purchased equipment.

(c) “Equipment”, as distinguished from “supplies” shall, for the purposes of this section, mean those items costing more than $10 which may be expected to last with reasonable care and use for more than one year. “Supplies" shall mean all other items meeting the definition in paragraph (b) of this section.

(d) The Federal Government has a continuing interest in the use and disposition of property in the cost of which it has participated (whether purchased with funds derived from Federal grants or matching funds). Whenever such property is sold or no longer used for the purposes permitted under the acts, the Federal Government is to be credited with its share, 50 percent, of the value of the property at that time, the value being determined on the basis of the sale price in the case of a bona fide sale or on the fair value in the case of discontinuance of use or other diversion. In the case of equipment purchased under title III, no accountability with respect to any Federal interest is required after the termination of the Federal-State program established under such title.

(e) Inventories are required to be kept for all equipment in which there is

a Federal interest. Although the title to this equipment may rest with either the State board for vocational education or a local school board, the state board has the responsibility for having available in the State office full information regarding such equipment so that it can readily be determined that the Federal interest is maintained. (23 F.R. 1031, Feb. 18, 1958, as amended at 24 F.R. 8229, Oct. 9, 1959) § 102.46 Employment.

(a) Enrollment in part-time and evening classes in trade and industrial education and distributive education is limited to persons who are employed.

(b) For the purposes of this section & person is considered employed in a distributive or trade and industrial occupation when he:

(1) Is lawfully employed in such occupation; or has been lawfully employed in such occupation and is temporarily without employment, but has a promise of employment in such occupation; or can give satisfactory evidence of going into business for himself; or is employed by parents who are self-employed; and

(2) Receives th going rate of pay of the business in which he is employed or he participates in the earnings of the business in lieu of a wage or salary. In the latter case, working for a living in a family business without pay will be accepted as satisfactorily meeting the requirement. In order to be considered employed, cooperative part-time students must receive, for the time employed, & monetary wage comparable to that paid other beginning employees or studentlearners performing similar duties.

(c) Employment in a distributive or trade or industrial business does not in itself qualify a person for enrollment; such employment must be in a distributive, trade or industrial occupation, as defined in $$ 102.56 and 102.71. § 102.47 Sectional cooperative classes.

Funds may not be used for classes covering more than one vocational field, except that funds may be used for cooperative classes (as defined in $ 102.1) enrolling persons employed in either a distributive or trade and Industrial occupation, if the State plan shows how the State board will assure itself that:
