(3) School board policies and procedures adopted pursuant to subsection (2) of this section (a) shall require any student participating in extracurricular activities pursuant to such subsection to be enrolled in no more and no less than five credit hours offered by the school district in any semester, (b) shall not allow any preference in the selection of a student for participation in an extracurricular activity based on such student's status as a full-time student in the school district, and (c) may require any student participating in extracurricular activities pursuant to such subsection to follow school policies that apply to other students when present on school grounds or at a school-sponsored activity or athletic event. Participation in extracurricular activities pursuant to subsection (2) of this section shall not entitle a student to transportation, except to and from practices and events to the same extent as public school students participating in such activities, or transportation reimbursement pursuant to section 79-611.
