Student Attending a Rule 18 School

We are a bit confused about the reporting responsibility for a student attending a Rule 18 School.  This student is an option in student at our district.  He was sent to Madison in April of 2013 and finished the school year there.  In July he was enrolled in Morton School-Whitehall Campus, a Rule 18 school in Lincoln.

At the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year I was told to report him as transferred out as he was attending Morton in Lincoln (at that time no one here apparently realized Morton was a Rule 18 school) 

NeSA testing came along and guess what, the NDE thinks we are responsible for him once again.  According to Ginger at the NDE Helpdesk the Who Reports What documentation students attending Rule 18 school are to be reported by the District of Residence not the last District of Membership.

Have any of you run into this situation and how do you handle these students?  Thanks for any guidance.
