in accordance with section 124.152 of the Revised Code or are      317          

listed in division (B)(2) or (4) of section 124.14 of the Revised  318

services, with the approval of the director of budget and          320          

management, may provide to some or all of these employees any      321          

payment or benefit, except for salary, contained in such a         323          

collective bargaining agreement even if it is similar to a         324          

payment or benefit already provided by law to some or all of       325          

these employees.  Any payment or benefit so provided shall not     326          

exceed the highest level for that payment or benefit specified in  327          

such a collective bargaining agreement.  The director of           328          

administrative services shall not provide, and the director of     329          

budget and management shall not approve, any payment or benefit    330          

to such an employee under this division unless the payment or      331          

benefit is provided pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement  332          

to a state employee who is in a position with similar duties as,   333          

is supervised by, or is employed by the same appointing authority  334          

as, the employee to whom the benefit or payment is to be           335          

provided.                                                                       

      As used in this division, "payment or benefit already        337          

provided by law" includes, but is not limited to, bereavement,     340          

personal, vacation, administrative, and sick leave, disability     342          

benefits, holiday pay, and pay supplements provided under the      343          

Revised Code, but does not include wages or salary.                344          

      (E)  New employees paid under schedule B of division (A) of  347          

this section or under schedule E-1 of section 124.152 of the       348          

Revised Code shall be employed at the minimum rate established     349          

for the range unless otherwise provided.  Employees with           350          

qualifications that are beyond the minimum normally required for   351          

the position and that are determined by the director to be                      

exceptional may be employed in, or may be transferred or promoted  352          

to, a position at an advanced step of the range.  Further, in      353          

time of a serious labor market condition when it is relatively     354          

                                                          8      


                                                                 
impossible to recruit employees at the minimum rate for a          355          

particular classification the entrance rate may be set at an       356          

advanced step in the range by the director of administrative       357          

services.  This rate may be limited to geographical regions of     358          

the state.  Appointments made to an advanced step under the        359          

provision regarding exceptional qualifications shall not affect    360          

the step assignment of employees already serving.  However,        361          

anytime the hiring rate of an entire classification is advanced    362          

to a higher step all incumbents of that classification being paid  363          

at a step lower than that being used for hiring, shall be          364          

advanced beginning at the start of the first pay period            365          

thereafter to the new hiring rate and any time accrued at the      366          

lower step will be used to calculate advancement to a succeeding   367          

step.  If the hiring rate of a classification is increased for     368          

only a geographical region of the state, then only incumbents who  369          

work in that geographical region shall be advanced to a higher     370          

step.   When an employee in the unclassified service changes from  371          

one state position to another, or is appointed to a position in    372          

the classified service, or if an employee in the classified        373          

service is appointed to a position in the unclassified service,    374          

the employee's salary or wage in the new position shall be         375          

determined in the same manner as if the employee were an employee  376          

in the classified service.  When an employee in the unclassified   377          

service who is not eligible for step increases is appointed to a   378          

classification in the classified service under which step          379          

increases are provided, future step increases shall be based on                 

the date on which the employee last received a pay increase.       380          

Future step increases shall be effective on the pay period that    381          

is twenty-six pay periods following the employee's last increase.  382          

If the employee has not received an increase during the previous   383          

year, the date of the appointment to the classified service shall  384          

be used to determine the employee's annual step advancement date.  385          

In reassigning any employee to a classification resulting in a     386          

pay range increase or to a new pay range as a result of a          387

classification change resulting in a pay range increase, the       389          

director shall assign such employee to the step in the new pay                  

range that will provide an increase of approximately four per      390          

cent if the new pay range can accommodate the increase.  When an   391          

employee is being assigned to a classification or new pay range    392          

as the result of a class plan change, if the employee has          394          

completed a probationary period, the employee shall be placed in   396          

a step no lower than step two of the new pay range.  If the                     

employee has not completed a probationary period, the employee     397          

may be placed in step one of the new pay range.  Such new salary   398          

or wage shall become effective on such date as the director        399          

determines.                                                                     

      (F)  If employment conditions and the urgency of the work    401          

require such action, the director of administrative services may,  402          

upon the application of a department head, authorize payment at    403          

any rate established within the range for the class of work, for   404          

work of a casual or intermittent nature or on a project basis.     405          

Payment at such rates shall not be made to the same individual     406          

for more than three calendar months in any one calendar year.      407          

Any such action shall be subject to the approval of the director   408          

of budget and management as to the availability of funds.  This    409          

section and sections 124.14 and 124.152 of the Revised Code do     410          

not repeal any authority of any department or public official to   411          

contract with or fix the compensation of professional persons who  412          

may be employed temporarily for work of a casual nature or for     413          

work on a project basis.                                           414          

      (G)  Each state employee paid under schedule B of this       417          

section or under schedule E-1 of section 124.152 of the Revised    418          

Code shall be advanced to succeeding steps in the range for the    419          

employee's class according to the schedule established in this                  

division.  Beginning on the first day of the pay period within     420          

which the employee completes the prescribed probationary period    421          

in the employee's classification with the state, each employee     422          

                                                          10     


                                                                 
shall receive an automatic salary adjustment equivalent to the     423          

next higher step within the pay range for the employee's class or  424          

grade.  The base rate of each employee paid under schedule B of    425          

this section or under schedule E-1 of section 124.152 of the       426          

Revised Code shall advance at annual intervals thereafter, if the  427          

employee has maintained satisfactory performance, to the next      428          

higher step until the maximum step is reached.  When an employee   429          

is promoted or reassigned to a higher pay range, the employee's    431          

step indicator shall return to "0" or be adjusted to account for   432          

a probationary period, as appropriate.  Step advancement shall     434          

not be affected by demotion.  A promoted employee shall advance                 

to the next higher step of the pay range on the first day of the   435          

pay period in which the required probationary period is            436          

completed.  Step advancement shall become effective at the         437          

beginning of the pay period within which the employee attains the  438          

necessary length of service.  Time spent on authorized leave of    439          

absence shall be counted for this purpose.                         440          

      If determined to be in the best interest of the state        442          

service, the director of administrative services may, either       443          

statewide or in selected agencies, adjust the dates on which       444          

annual step increases are received by employees paid under                      

schedule E-1 of section 124.152 of the Revised Code.               445          

      (H)  Employees in appointive managerial or professional      447          

positions paid under salary schedule C of this section or under    448          

salary schedule E-2 of section 124.152 of the Revised Code may be  449          

appointed at any rate within the appropriate pay range.  This      450          

rate of pay may be adjusted higher or lower within the respective  451          

pay range at any time the appointing authority so desires as long  452          

as the adjustment is based on the employee's ability to            453          

successfully administer those duties assigned to the employee.     454          

Salary adjustments shall not be made more frequently than once in  455          

any six-month period under this provision to incumbents holding    456          

the same position and classification.                              457          

      (I)  When an employee is assigned to duty outside this       459          

                                                          11     


                                                                 
state, the employee may be compensated, upon request of the        460          

department head and with the approval of the director of           461          

administrative services at a rate not to exceed fifty per cent in  462          

excess of the employee's current base rate for the period of time  463          

spent on such duty.                                                             

      (J)  Unless compensation for members of a board or           465          

commission is otherwise specifically provided by law, the          466          

director of administrative services shall establish the rate and   467          

method of payment for members of boards and commissions pursuant   468          

to the pay schedules listed in section 124.152 of the Revised      469          

Code.                                                              470          

      (K)  Regular full-time employees in positions assigned to    472          

classes within the instruction and education administration        473          

series under the rules of the director of administrative           474          

services, except certificated employees on the instructional       475          

staff of the state school for the blind or the state school for    476          

the deaf, whose positions are scheduled to work on the basis of    477          

an academic year rather than a full calendar year, shall be paid   478          

according to the pay range assigned by such rules but only during  479          

those pay periods included in the academic year of the school      480          

where the employee is located.                                     481          

      (1)  Part-time or substitute teachers or those whose period  483          

of employment is other than the full academic year shall be        484          

compensated for the actual time worked at the rate established by  485          

this section.                                                      486          

      (2)  Employees governed by this division are exempt from     488          

sections 124.13 and 124.19 of the Revised Code.                    489          

      (3)  Length of service for the purpose of determining        491          

eligibility for step increases as provided by division (G) of      492

instruction, carry out both of the following:                      501          

      (1)  Annually, between the first day of April and the last   503          

day of June, establish for the ensuing fiscal year a schedule of   504          

hourly rates for the compensation of each certificated employee    505          

on the instructional staff of that superintendent's respective     506          

school constructed as follows:                                     507          

      (a)  Determine for each level of training, experience, and   509          

other professional qualification for which an hourly rate is set   510          

forth in the current schedule, the per cent that rate is of the    511          

rate set forth in such schedule for a teacher with a bachelor's    512          

degree and no experience.  If there is more than one such rate     513          

for such a teacher, the lowest rate shall be used to make the      514          

computation.                                                       515          

      (b)  Determine which six city, local, and exempted village   517          

school districts with territory in Franklin county have in effect  518          

on, or have adopted by, the first day of April for the school      519          

year that begins on the ensuing first day of July, teacher salary  520          

schedules with the highest minimum salaries for a teacher with a   521          

bachelor's degree and no experience;                               522          

      (c)  Divide the sum of such six highest minimum salaries by  524          

ten thousand five hundred sixty;                                   525          

      (d)  Multiply each per cent determined in division           527          

(L)(1)(a) of this section by the quotient obtained in division     528          

(L)(1)(c) of this section;                                         529          

      (e)  One hundred five per cent of each product thus          531          

obtained shall be the hourly rate for the corresponding level of   532          

training, experience, or other professional qualification in the   533          

schedule for the ensuing fiscal year.                              534          

      (2)  Annually, assign each certificated employee on the      536          

instructional staff of the superintendent's respective school to   538          

an hourly rate on the schedule that is commensurate with the                    

employee's training, experience, and other professional            539          

                                                          13     


                                                                 
qualifications.                                                                 

      If an employee is employed on the basis of an academic       541          

year, the employee's annual salary shall be calculated by          542          

multiplying the employee's assigned hourly rate times one          543          

thousand seven hundred sixty.  If an employee is not employed on   544          

the basis of an academic year, the employee's annual salary shall  545          

be calculated in accordance with the following formula:            546          

      (a)  Multiply the number of days the employee is required    548          

to work pursuant to the employee's contract by eight;              549          

      (b)  Multiply the product of division (L)(2)(a) of this      551          

section by the employee's assigned hourly rate.                    552          

      Each employee shall be paid an annual salary in biweekly     554          

installments.  The amount of each installment shall be calculated  555          

by dividing the employee's annual salary by the number of          556          

biweekly installments to be paid during the year.                  557          

      Sections 124.13 and 124.19 of the Revised Code do not apply  559          

to an employee who is paid under this division.                    560

of days in each school year that the schools are required to be    563          

open for instruction with pupils in attendance.  Upon completing   564          

an academic year, an employee paid under this division shall be    565          

deemed to have completed one year of service.  An employee paid    566          

under this division is eligible to receive a pay supplement under  567          

division (L)(1), (2), or (3) of section 124.181 of the Revised     568          

Code for which the employee qualifies, but is not eligible to      569          

receive a pay supplement under division (L)(4) or (5) of such      570          

section.  An employee paid under this division is eligible to      571          

receive a pay supplement under division (L)(6) of section 124.181  572          

of the Revised Code for which the employee qualifies, except that  573          

the supplement is not limited to a maximum of five per cent of     574          

the employee's regular base salary in a calendar year.             575          

      (M)  Division (A) of this section does not apply to "exempt  577          

employees" as defined in section 124.152 of the Revised Code who   578          

are paid under that section.                                       579          

                                                          14     


                                                                 
      Notwithstanding any other provisions of this chapter, when   581          

an employee transfers between bargaining units or transfers out    582          

of or into a bargaining unit, the director shall establish the     583          

employee's compensation and adjust the maximum leave accrual       584          

schedule as the director deems equitable.                          585

      When determining the availability of money in the total      614          

operating fund to pay claims chargeable to a fund contained        615          

within the total operating fund, the director of budget and        616          

management shall use the same procedures and criteria he THE       617          

DIRECTOR employs in determining the availability of money in a     619          

fund contained within the total operating fund.  The director may  620          

establish limits on the negative cash balance of the general       621          

revenue fund within the total operating fund, but in no case       622          

shall the negative cash balance of the general revenue fund        623

established under the Clean Vessel Act of 1992.                    1,209        

      Sec. 3109.401.  (A)  The general assembly finds the          1,219        

following:                                                                      

      (1)  That the parent and child relationship is of            1,221        

fundamental importance to the welfare of a child, and that the     1,222        

relationship between a child and each parent should be fostered    1,223        

unless inconsistent with the child's best interests;               1,224        

      (2)  That parents have the responsibility to make decisions  1,227        

and perform other parenting functions necessary for the care and   1,228        

growth of their children;                                                       

      (3)  That the courts, when allocating parenting functions    1,230        

and responsibilities with respect to the child in a divorce,       1,231        

dissolution, legal separation, annulment, or any other proceeding  1,233        

addressing the allocation of parental rights and                                

responsibilities, must determine the child's best interests;       1,235        

      (4)  That the courts and parents must take into              1,237        

consideration the following general principles when allocating     1,238        

parental rights and responsibilities and developing appropriate    1,240        

terms for parenting plans:                                                      

      (a)  Children are served by a parenting arrangement that     1,243        

best provides for a child's safety, emotional growth, health,      1,244        

                                                          29     


                                                                 
stability, and physical care.                                                   

      (b)  Exposure of the child to harmful parental conflict      1,247        

should be minimized as much as possible.                           1,248        

      (c)  Whenever appropriate, parents should be encouraged to   1,251        

meet their responsibilities to their children through agreements   1,252        

rather than by relying on judicial intervention.                   1,253        

      (d)  When a parenting plan provides for mutual               1,256        

decision-making responsibility by the parents but they are unable  1,257        

to make decisions mutually, they should make a good faith effort   1,258        

to utilize the mediation process as required by the parenting      1,259        

plan.                                                                           

      (e)  In apportioning between the parents the daily physical  1,262        

living arrangements of the child and the child's location during   1,263        

legal and school holidays, vacations, and days of special          1,264        

importance, a court should not impose any type of standard         1,265        

schedule unless a standard schedule meets the needs of the child                

better than any proposed alternative parenting plan.               1,266        

      (B)  It is, therefore, the purpose of Chapter 3109. of the   1,269        

Revised Code, when it is in the child's best interest, to foster   1,271        

the relationship between the child and each parent when a court    1,272        

allocates parental rights and responsibilities with respect to     1,273        

the child in a divorce, dissolution, legal separation, annulment,  1,274        

or any other proceeding addressing the allocation of parental      1,275        

rights and responsibilities.                                       1,276        

      (C)  There is hereby created the task force on family law    1,279

of the fiscal year if it commences or continues operating its      1,403        

instructional program in accordance with its adopted school        1,404        

calendar and pays all obligated expenses.                          1,405        

      (C)  No board of education may delay the opening of its      1,407        

schools or close its schools for financial reasons.  Upon the      1,408        

request of the superintendent of public instruction, the attorney  1,409        

general shall seek injunctive relief and any other relief          1,410        

required to enforce this prohibition in the court of common pleas  1,411        

of Franklin county.  The court of common pleas of Franklin county  1,412        

has exclusive original jurisdiction over all such actions.         1,413        

      (D)  Upon the receipt of any certification of an operating   1,415        

deficit from the auditor of state, a board of education shall      1,416        

make application to a commercial bank, underwriter, or other       1,417        

prospective lender or purchaser of its obligations for a loan in   1,418        

an amount sufficient to enable the district to open or remain      1,419        

open for instruction on all days set forth in its adopted school   1,420        

calendar but not to exceed the amount of the deficit certified.    1,421        

      (E)(1)  Any board of education that has applied for and      1,423        

been denied a loan from a commercial bank, underwriter, or other   1,424        

                                                          33     


                                                                 
prospective lender or purchaser of its obligations pursuant to     1,425        

division (D) of this section shall submit to the superintendent    1,426        

of public instruction a plan for implementing reductions in the    1,427        

school district's budget; apply for a loan from a commercial       1,428        

bank, underwriter, or other prospective lender or purchaser of     1,429        

its obligations in an amount not to exceed its certified deficit;  1,430        

and provide the superintendent such information as the             1,431        

superintendent requires concerning its application for such a      1,432        

loan.  The board of education of a school district declared to be  1,433        

under a fiscal watch pursuant to division (A) of section 3316.03   1,434        

of the Revised Code may, upon approval of the superintendent,      1,435        

utilize the financial plan required by section 3316.04 of the      1,436        

Revised Code, or applicable parts thereof, as the plan required    1,437        

under this division.  The board of education of a school district               

declared to be under a fiscal emergency pursuant to division (B)   1,438        

of section 3316.03 of the Revised Code may utilize the financial   1,439        

recovery plan for the district, or applicable parts thereof, as    1,440        

the plan required under this division.  Except for the plan of a   1,441        

school district under a fiscal emergency, the superintendent       1,442        

shall evaluate, make recommendations concerning, and approve or    1,443        

disapprove each plan.  When a plan is submitted, the                            

superintendent shall immediately notify the members of the         1,444        

general assembly whose legislative districts include any or all    1,445        

of the territory of the school district submitting the plan.       1,446        

      (2)  The superintendent shall submit to the controlling      1,448        

board a copy of each plan the superintendent approves, or each     1,450        

plan submitted by a district under a fiscal emergency pursuant to               

division (B) of section 3316.03 of the Revised Code, and the       1,451        

general terms of each proposed loan, and shall make                1,452        

recommendations regarding the plan and whether a proposed loan to  1,453        

the board of education should be approved for payment as provided  1,454        

in division (E)(3) of this section.  The controlling board shall   1,455        

approve or disapprove the plan and the proposed loan presented to  1,456        

it by the superintendent.  In the case of a district not under a   1,457        

                                                          34     


                                                                 
fiscal emergency pursuant to division (B) of section 3316.03 of    1,458        

the Revised Code, the controlling board may require a board of     1,459        

education to implement the superintendent's recommendations for                 

expenditure reductions or impose other requirements.  Loan         1,461        

repayments shall be in accordance with a schedule approved by the  1,462        

superintendent, except that the principal amount of the loan       1,463        

shall be payable in monthly, semiannual, or annual installments    1,464        

of principal and interest that are substantially equal principal   1,465        

and interest installments.  Except as otherwise provided in        1,466        

division (E)(2) of this section, repayment shall be made no later  1,467        

than the fifteenth day of June of the second fiscal year           1,468        

following the approval of the loan.  A school district with a      1,469        

certified deficit in excess of either twenty-five million dollars  1,470        

or fifteen per cent of the general fund expenditures of the        1,471        

district during the fiscal year shall repay the loan no later      1,472        

than the fifteenth day of June of the tenth fiscal year following  1,473        

the approval of the loan.  In deciding whether to approve or       1,474        

disapprove a proposed loan, the controlling board shall consider   1,475        

the deficit certified by the auditor of state pursuant to this     1,476        

section.  A board of education that has an outstanding loan        1,477        

approved pursuant to this section with a repayment date of more    1,478        

than two fiscal years after the date of approval of such loan may  1,479        

not apply for another loan with such a repayment date until the    1,480        

outstanding loan has been repaid.                                               

      (3)  If a board of education has submitted and received      1,482        

controlling board approval of a plan and proposed loan in          1,483        

accordance with this section, the superintendent of public         1,484        

instruction shall report to the controlling board the actual       1,485        

amounts loaned to the board of education.  Such board of           1,486        

education shall request the superintendent to pay any funds the    1,487        

board of education would otherwise receive pursuant to sections    1,488        

3317.022 to 3317.025 of the Revised Code first directly to the     1,489        

holders of the board of education's notes, or an agent thereof,    1,490        

such amounts as are specified under the terms of the loan.  Such   1,491        

                                                          35     


                                                                 
payments shall be made only from and to the extent of money        1,492        

appropriated by the general assembly for purposes of such          1,493        

sections.  No note or other obligation of the board of education   1,494        

under the loan constitutes an obligation nor a debt or a pledge    1,495        

of the faith, credit, or taxing power of the state, and the        1,496        

holder or owner of such note or obligation has no right to have    1,497        

taxes levied by the general assembly for the payment of such note  1,498        

or obligation, and such note or obligation shall contain a         1,499        

statement to that effect.                                          1,500        

      (4)  Pursuant to the terms of such a loan, a board of        1,502        

education may issue its notes in anticipation of the collection    1,503        

of its voted levies for current expenses or its receipt of such    1,504        

state funds or both.  Such notes shall be issued in accordance     1,505        

with division (E) of section 133.10 of the Revised Code and        1,506        

constitute Chapter 133. securities to the extent such division     1,507        

and the otherwise applicable provisions of Chapter 133. of the     1,508        

Revised Code are not inconsistent with this section, provided      1,509        

that in any event sections 133.24 and 5705.21 and divisions (A),   1,510        

(B), (C), and (E)(2) of section 133.10 of the Revised Code do not  1,511        

apply to such notes.                                               1,512        

      (5)  Notwithstanding section 133.36 or 3313.17, any other    1,514        

section of the Revised Code, or any other provision of law, a      1,515        

board of education that has received a loan under this section     1,516        

may not declare bankruptcy, so long as any portion of such loan    1,517        

remains unpaid.                                                    1,518        

      (F)  Under this section and sections 3313.4810 and           1,520        

3313.4811, "board of education" or "district board" includes the   1,521        

financial planning and supervision commission of a school          1,522        

district under a fiscal emergency pursuant to Chapter 3316. of     1,523        

the Revised Code where such commission chooses to exercise the                  

powers and duties otherwise required of the district board of      1,524        

education under this section and sections 3313.4810 and 3313.4811  1,525        

of the Revised Code.                                                            

      Sec. 3313.487.  (A)  Upon receipt of a copy of a request     1,534        

                                                          36     


                                                                 
for a determination under section 3313.483 of the Revised Code or  1,535        

upon the issuance of written notification under division (C)(B)    1,537        

of section 3313.489 of the Revised Code, the superintendent of     1,538        

public instruction shall analyze the district's financial          1,539        

condition and ascertain what elements of the district's            1,540        

educational program exceed or fail to meet the minimum standards   1,541        

of the state board of education and requirements set forth in the  1,542        

Revised Code, and what, if any, additional revenues or revenue     1,543        

sources may be available to the district that are not included in  1,544        

its official certificate or amended certificate of estimated       1,545        

resources.  The superintendent shall make a written report of the  1,547        

superintendent's findings to the school district's board of                     

education, the auditor of state, and the state board of            1,549        

education.  The report shall include any recommendations,          1,550        

including reductions in programs which exceed minimum standards    1,551        

of the state board of education or requirements set forth in the   1,552        

Revised Code, that, if followed, would enable the district to      1,553        

reduce its expenses while operating an educational program that    1,554        

is responsive to the educational needs of the school district in   1,555        

accordance with its adopted school calendar.  The superintendent   1,556        

may determine that a responsive educational program requires the   1,557        

inclusion of elements exceeding the minimum standards of the       1,558        

state board of education or requirements of the Revised Code.      1,559        

If, upon completion of the analysis and findings as provided in    1,560        

this division, the superintendent determines that the district     1,561        

will be financially unable to operate its educational program in   1,562        

accordance with its adopted school calendar and pay all obligated  1,563        

expenses, the superintendent shall notify the auditor of state in  1,564        

writing.  Upon receipt of such notification, the auditor of state  1,566        

shall issue findings pursuant to section 3313.483 of the Revised   1,568        

Code.                                                                           

      (B)  Upon the receipt of the superintendent of public        1,570        

instruction's report under division (A) of this section or a       1,571        

certification from the auditor of state under section 3313.483 of  1,572        

                                                          37     


                                                                 
the Revised Code, the state board of education may, at any time    1,573        

during the next ninety days, issue an order making the school      1,574        

district subject to section 3313.488 of the Revised Code if it     1,575        

finds the school district is not able to operate an educational    1,576        

program from existing revenue sources during the current and the   1,577        

ensuing school year.  Such order shall take immediate effect, and  1,578        

such section shall apply to the school district.  Prior to the     1,579        

issuance of any order under this division, the state board of      1,580        

education may request from the superintendent of public            1,581        

instruction a recommendation regarding the matter of the issuance  1,582        

of an order making a school district subject to section 3313.488   1,583        

of the Revised Code.  A board of education may appeal the order    1,584        

on questions of fact to the court of common pleas of Franklin      1,585        

county.                                                            1,586        

      (C)  Notwithstanding division (B) of this section, the       1,588        

state board of education shall issue an order making a school      1,589        

district subject to section 3313.488 of the Revised Code if the    1,590        

district fails to enter into a loan agreement with a commercial    1,591        

lending institution within forty-five days of the deficit          1,592        

certification pursuant to section 3313.483 of the Revised Code.    1,593        

If the state board issues an order under this division, the        1,594        

superintendent of public instruction shall apply for a loan from   1,595        

a commercial lending institution pursuant to section 3313.483 of   1,596        

the Revised Code on behalf of the district.  The superintendent    1,597        

shall have full authority to act on behalf of the board of         1,598        

education of a school district with respect to the making of loan  1,599        

agreements, and any loan agreement made by the superintendent      1,600        

shall be fully binding on the school district.                     1,601        

      (D)  This section does not apply to a school district        1,603        

declared to be under a fiscal emergency pursuant to division (B)   1,604        

of section 3316.03 of the Revised Code.                            1,605        

      Sec. 3313.489.  (A)  The superintendent of public            1,614        

instruction shall examine each spending plan and appropriations    1,615        

measure submitted under section 5705.391 of the Revised Code and   1,616        

                                                          38     


                                                                 
shall determine whether the information contained therein,         1,617        

together with any other relevant information, indicates that the   1,618        

district may be financially unable to operate its instructional    1,619        

program on all days set forth in its adopted school calendars and  1,620        

pay all obligated expenses during the current fiscal year.  If a   1,621        

board of education has not adopted a school calendar for the       1,622        

school year beginning on the first day of July of the current      1,623        

fiscal year at the time an examination is required under this      1,624        

division, the superintendent shall examine the spending plan and   1,625        

appropriations measure and determine whether the district may be   1,626        

financially unable to pay all obligated expenses and operate its   1,627        

instructional program for the number of days on which instruction  1,628        

was held in the preceding fiscal year.                             1,629        

      (B)  Upon the receipt of any written notification from a     1,631        

county auditor pursuant to section 5705.412 of the Revised Code,   1,632        

the superintendent of public instruction shall determine whether   1,633        

the situation described in the notification exists.  If such       1,634        

situation exists, the superintendent shall examine the district's  1,635        

appropriation measure and spending plan submitted under section    1,636        

5705.391 of the Revised Code and determine whether the             1,637        

information contained therein, together with any other relevant    1,638

      (b)  For the provision of speech services to students and    2,664        

for no other purpose, the department of education shall pay each   2,665        

school district an amount calculated under the following formula:  2,666        

                 (formula ADM divided by 2000) X                   2,668        

      the personnel allowance X the state share percentage         2,669        

      (6)  In any fiscal year, a school district receiving funds   2,671        

under division (C)(1) of this section shall spend those funds      2,672        

only for the purposes that the department designates as approved   2,673        

for special education expenses.                                    2,674        

      (D)(1)  As used in this division:                            2,676        

      (a)  "Daily bus miles per student" equals the number of bus  2,678        

miles traveled per day, divided by transportation base.            2,679        

      (b)  "Transportation base" equals total student count as     2,681        

defined in section 3301.011 of the Revised Code, minus the number  2,682        

of students enrolled in preschool handicapped units, plus the      2,683        

number of nonpublic school students included in transportation     2,684        

ADM.                                                                            

      (c)  "Transported student percentage" equals transportation  2,686        

ADM divided by transportation base.                                2,687        

      (d)  "Transportation cost per student" equals total          2,689        

operating costs for board-owned or contractor-operated school      2,690        

buses divided by transportation base.                              2,691        

      (2)  Analysis of student transportation cost data has        2,693        

resulted in a finding that an average efficient transportation     2,694        

use cost per student can be calculated by means of a regression    2,695        

formula that has as its two independent variables the number of    2,696        

daily bus miles per student and the transported student            2,697        

percentage.  For fiscal year 1998 transportation cost data, the    2,698        

average efficient transportation use cost per student is           2,699        

expressed as follows:                                                           

     51.79027 + (139.62626 X daily bus miles per student) +        2,701        

          (116.25573 X transported student percentage)             2,702        

      The department of education shall annually determine the     2,704        

                                                          62     


                                                                 
average efficient transportation use cost per student in           2,705        

accordance with the principles stated in division (D)(2) of this   2,706        

section, updating the intercept and regression coefficients of     2,707        

the regression formula modeled in this division, based on an       2,708        

annual statewide analysis of each school district's daily bus      2,709        

miles per student, transported student percentage, and             2,710        

transportation cost per student data.  The department shall        2,711        

conduct the annual update using data, including daily bus miles    2,712        

per student, transported student percentage, and transportation    2,713        

cost per student data, from the prior fiscal year.  The            2,714        

department shall notify the office of budget and management of                  

such update by the fifteenth day of February of each year.         2,715        

      (3)  In addition to funds paid under divisions (A), (C),     2,717        

and (E) of this section, each district with a transported student  2,719        

percentage greater than zero shall receive a payment equal to a    2,720        

percentage of the product of the district's transportation base    2,722        

from the prior fiscal year times the annually updated average      2,723        

efficient transportation use cost per student, times an inflation  2,725        

factor of two and eight tenths per cent to account for the         2,726        

one-year difference between the data used in updating the formula  2,728        

and calculating the payment and the year in which the payment is                

made.  The percentage shall be the following percentage of that    2,729        

product specified for the corresponding fiscal year:               2,730

      (B)  Upon receiving the certifications under section         3,101        

3317.021 of the Revised Code, the department of education shall    3,102

and fifty cents times the number of such ADM shall be apportioned  3,189        

by the state board of education among the local school districts   3,190        

in the territory of the service center, or among all districts to  3,191        

which the governing board provides services, on the basis of the   3,193        

total number of pupils in each school district.                    3,194

apportioned by the state board of education among the local        3,198        

school districts in the territory of the service center on the     3,200        

basis of the total number of such pupils in each such school       3,201        

district, provided that a majority of the boards of education of   3,202        

such local school districts approve such apportionment.  The       3,203        

state board of education shall initiate and supervise the          3,204        

procedure by which the local boards shall approve or disapprove    3,205        

such apportionment.                                                             

      The amounts so apportioned shall be certified to the         3,207

district such amount shall be deducted by the state board of       3,209        

                                                          73

      The state board of education shall certify to the director   3,213        

of budget and management for payment the total of the deductions,  3,214        

whereupon the amount shall be paid to the governing board of each  3,216        

service center, to be deposited to the credit of a separate fund,  3,218        

hereby created, to be known as the educational service center      3,219

may be operated by a governing board.  Vocational education may                 

be provided by a governing board.  A governing board may conduct   3,231        

driver education for pupils enrolled in a high school for which    3,232        

the state board of education prescribes minimum standards.         3,233        

      Every local school district shall be provided supervisory    3,235        

services by its governing board as approved by the state board of  3,237        

education.  A city or exempted village school district shall be    3,238

part of the school district's basic project cost to address with   3,827        

local resources, the school district board may allocate any        3,828        

available school district moneys to pay the cost of that           3,829        

identified part, including the proceeds of an issuance of bonds                 

if approved by the electors of the school district.                3,831

Code.                                                                           

      (E)  If the school district becomes eligible for state       3,851        

assistance under sections 3318.01 to 3318.20 of the Revised Code   3,853

of this section, the commission shall conduct a new assessment of  3,855        

the school district's classroom facilities needs and shall         3,856

shall then recalculate the school district's portion of the new    3,860        

basic project cost by utilizing the proportion of the original     3,861        

basic project cost assigned to the school district as its portion  3,862        

under division (C) of this section.  The commission shall deduct   3,863        

the expenditure of school district moneys made under division      3,864        

(D)(1) of this section from the school district's portion of the   3,865        

basic project cost as recalculated under this division.  If the    3,866        

amount of school district resources applied by the school          3,867        

district board to the school district's portion of the basic       3,869        

project cost under this section is less than the total amount of   3,870        

such portion as recalculated under this division, the school                    

district board by a majority vote of all of its members shall, if  3,871        

                                                          88     


                                                                 
it desires to seek state assistance under sections 3318.01 to      3,872        

3318.20 of the Revised Code, adopt a resolution as specified in    3,873        

section 3318.06 of the Revised Code to submit to the electors of   3,874        

the school district the question of approval of a bond issue in    3,875        

order to pay any additional amount of school district portion      3,876        

required for state assistance.  The tax levy approved under        3,877        

division (D)(2) of this section shall satisfy the requirements to  3,878        

levy the one-half mill additional tax under section 3318.06 of     3,879        

the Revised Code.                                                               

      If the amount of school district resources applied by the    3,881        

school district board to the school district's portion of the      3,882        

basic project cost under this section is more than the total       3,883        

amount of such portion as recalculated under this division, the    3,884        

commission may reimburse to the school district the difference     3,885        

between the two calculated portions, but at no time shall the      3,886        

commission expend any state funds on a project in an amount        3,887        

greater than the state's portion of the basic project cost as      3,888        

recalculated under this division.                                  3,889

such a degree program.  Any program authorization issued by the    3,975        

board under this division is valid only for the specified program  3,976        

at the location for which it is issued and does not cover any      3,977        

other program offered at the school or at other schools operated   3,978

      (D)  The board may cause an investigation to be made into    3,986        

the correctness of the information submitted in any application    3,987

misleading, or incomplete information has been submitted to it in  3,989        

connection with any application, the board shall conduct a         3,990

authorization upon finding that the applicant has failed to meet   3,993        

the standards for such certificate or program authorization or     3,994        

                                                          91

authorization shall be made in writing to the board on forms       3,997        

furnished by the board.   A certificate of registration or         3,998        

program authorization is not transferable and shall be             3,999        

prominently displayed on the premises of an institution.           4,000        

      The board shall assign registration numbers to all schools   4,002        

registered with it.  Schools shall display their registration      4,003        

numbers on all school publications and on all advertisements       4,004        

bearing the name of the school.                                    4,005        

      Notwithstanding the requirements of this section for         4,007

      (B)  Beginning July 1, 2000, the Ohio board of regents       4,075        

shall establish and administer the student workforce development   4,076        

grant program and shall adopt rules for the administration of the  4,077

      (E)  A grant awarded to an eligible student shall be paid    4,107

If a student receives assistance under one or more other           4,121        

provisions of state law, the grant made to the student under this  4,122        

section shall not exceed the difference between the total          4,123        

instructional and general charges assessed to the student by the   4,124        

private career school and the amount of total assistance the       4,125        

student receives under other provisions of state law.              4,126        

      (G)  The general assembly shall support the workforce        4,128

regents the name of each student who has received such a grant     4,135        

but who is no longer eligible for such a grant.  In the event      4,137        

that an eligible student who has been awarded a grant under this                

section withdraws from enrollment at a school during any term,     4,138        

the school shall refund a prorated amount of the student's grant   4,139        

for that term to the Ohio board of regents in accordance with the  4,140        

school's refund policy.                                            4,141        

      (I)  Beginning July 1, 2000, the state board of proprietary  4,144

the immediately preceding academic year.  No grant awarded to an   4,148        

eligible student under this section shall be paid to a registered  4,149        

private career school if the school's job placement rate for that  4,150        

student's baccalaureate degree or AND associate degree program     4,152        

PROGRAMS for the preceding academic year was less than             4,153

department may take action pursuant to section 5101.24 of the      4,728        

Revised Code.  If another agency fails to comply within the time

due the agency or imposing another sanction established by rules   4,730

state.                                                             4,745        

                                                          107    


                                                                 
      (2)  The person may apply to the court for designation as    4,747        

an indigent and, if the court grants this application, the         4,748        

appellant shall not be required to furnish the costs of the        4,749        

appeal.                                                            4,750

department of job and family services and file notice of appeal    4,754        

with the court within thirty days after the department mails the   4,757

shown, the court may extend the time for mailing and filing        4,759        

notice of appeal, but such time shall not exceed six months from   4,760        

the date the department mails the administrative appeal decision.  4,761        

Filing notice of appeal with the court shall be the only act       4,762        

necessary to vest jurisdiction in the court.                       4,763

      (2)  Multiply that percentage increase by each of the total  5,131        

income amounts for the preceding year;                             5,132

levies that existed in 1998, and all other fixed-sum levies that   5,525        

existed in 1998 and continue to be charged in the tax year         5,526        

preceding the distribution year.  For the years 2007 through 2016  5,527        

IN THE CASE OF SCHOOL DISTRICT EMERGENCY LEVIES, AND FOR ALL                    

YEARS AFTER 2006 IN THE CASE OF ALL OTHER FIXED-SUM LEVIES, this   5,528        

computation shall exclude all school district emergency levies     5,530        

and all other fixed-sum levies that existed in 1998 but are no     5,531        

longer in effect in the tax year preceding the distribution year.  5,532        

FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, AN EMERGENCY LEVY THAT EXISTED   5,533        

IN 1998 CONTINUES TO EXIST IN A YEAR BEGINNING ON OR AFTER         5,534        

JANUARY 1, 2007, BUT BEFORE JANUARY 1, 2017, IF, IN THAT YEAR,     5,535        

                                                          125    


                                                                 
THE BOARD OF EDUCATION LEVIES A SCHOOL DISTRICT EMERGENCY LEVY                  

FOR AN ANNUAL SUM AT LEAST EQUAL TO THE ANNUAL SUM LEVIED BY THE   5,536        

BOARD IN TAX YEAR 1998 LESS THE AMOUNT OF THE PAYMENT CERTIFIED    5,537        

UNDER THIS DIVISION FOR 2002.                                      5,538        

      (2)  The total taxable value in tax year 1998 in each        5,540        

school district, joint vocational school district, and local       5,541        

taxing unit multiplied by one-fourth of one mill.                  5,542        

      If the computation under division (E) of this section for    5,544        

any school district, joint vocational school district, or local    5,545        

taxing unit is greater than zero, the one-fourth of one mill that  5,546        

is subtracted pursuant to division (E) of section 5727.85 of the   5,547        

Revised Code or division (A)(2) of section 5727.86 of the Revised  5,549        

Code shall be apportioned among all contributing fixed-sum levies  5,551        

in the proportion of each levy to the sum of all fixed-sum levies  5,552        

within each school district, joint vocational school district, or  5,553        

local taxing unit.                                                              

      (F)  Notwithstanding divisions (C), (D), and (E) of this     5,556        

section, in computing the tax value loss, fixed-rate levy loss,    5,557        

and fixed-sum levy loss, the tax commissioner shall use the                     

greater of the 1998 tax rate or the 1999 tax rate, but the 1999    5,558        

tax rate shall not include for this purpose any tax levy approved  5,559        

by the voters after June 30, 1999.                                 5,560        

      Sec. 5727.85.  (A)  By the thirty-first day of July of each  5,570        

year, beginning in 2002 and ending in 2016, the department of      5,571        

education shall determine the following for each school district   5,572        

eligible for payment under division (C) of this section:           5,573        

      (1)  The state education aid offset, which is the            5,575        

difference obtained by subtracting the amount described in         5,576        

division (A)(1)(b) of this section from the amount described in    5,578        

division (A)(1)(a) of this section:                                5,580        

      (a)  The state education aid computed for the school         5,582        

district for the current fiscal year on the basis of the adjusted  5,583        

total taxable value;                                               5,584        

      (b)  The state education aid that would be computed for the  5,586        

                                                          126    


                                                                 
school district for the current fiscal year if the district's      5,587        

adjusted total taxable value included the tax value loss for all   5,588        

taxing districts in the school district.                                        

      (2)  The difference obtained by subtracting the state        5,590        

education aid offset determined under division (A)(1) of this      5,591        

section from the fixed-rate levy loss determined under division    5,592        

(D) of section 5727.84 of the Revised Code for all taxing          5,593        

districts in each school district.  The department of education    5,594        

shall certify the amount so determined to the director of budget   5,595        

and management.                                                                 

      (B)  Not later than the thirty-first day of October of the   5,598        

years 2006 through 2016, the department of education shall         5,599        

determine all of the following for each school district:           5,600        

      (1)  The amount obtained by subtracting the district's       5,602        

state education aid computed for fiscal year 2002 from the         5,603        

district's state education aid computed for the current fiscal     5,604        

year;                                                                           

      (2)  The inflation-adjusted property tax loss.  The          5,606        

inflation-adjusted property tax loss equals the fixed-rate levy    5,607        

loss determined under division (D) of section 5727.84 of the       5,609        

Revised Code for all taxing districts in each school district      5,610        

plus the product obtained by multiplying that loss by the          5,611        

cumulative percentage increase in the consumer price index from    5,612        

January 1, 2002, to the thirtieth day of June of the current       5,613        

year.                                                                           

      (3)  The difference obtained by subtracting the amount       5,615        

computed under division (B)(1) from the amount of the              5,616        

inflation-adjusted property tax loss.  If this difference is zero  5,617        

or a negative number, no further payments shall be made under      5,618        

division (C) of this section to the school district from the       5,619        

school district property tax replacement fund.  If the difference  5,621        

is greater than zero, the department of education shall certify                 

the amount calculated in division (A)(2) of this section to the    5,623        

director of budget and management not later than the thirty-first  5,624        

                                                          127    


                                                                 
day of December of each year, beginning in 2006 and ending in      5,626        

2016.                                                                           

      (C)  For all taxing districts in each school district, the   5,628        

director of budget and management shall pay from the school        5,629        

district property tax replacement fund to the county undivided     5,630        

income tax fund in the proper county treasury all of the           5,631        

following:                                                         5,632        

      (1)  In February 2002, one-half of the fixed-rate levy loss  5,634        

certified under division (D) of section 5727.84 of the Revised     5,636        

Code on or before the day prescribed for the settlement under      5,638

      (2)  From August 2002 through August 2006, one-half of the   5,642        

amount certified for that fiscal year under division (A)(2) of     5,643        

this section on or before each of the days prescribed for the      5,644        

settlements under divisions (A) and (C) of section 321.24 of the   5,645        

Revised Code.                                                      5,646        

      (3)  From February 2007 through August 2016, one-half of     5,648        

the amount certified for that calendar year under division (B)(3)  5,650        

of this section on or before each of the days prescribed for the   5,651        

settlements under divisions (A) and (C) of section 321.24 of the   5,652        

Revised Code.                                                      5,653        

      The county treasurer shall distribute amounts paid under     5,655        

divisions (C)(1), (2), and (3) of this section to the proper       5,656        

school district as if they had been levied and collected as        5,657        

taxes, and the school district shall apportion the amounts so                   

received among its funds in the same proportions as if those       5,658        

amounts had been levied and collected as taxes.                    5,659        

      (D)  Not later than January 1, 2002, for all taxing          5,661        

districts in each joint vocational school district, the tax        5,663        

commissioner shall certify to the director of budget and           5,664        

management the fixed-rate levy loss determined under division (D)  5,666        

of section 5727.84 of the Revised Code.  From February 2002 to     5,668        

August 2016, the director shall pay from the school district       5,669

                                                          128    


                                                                 
fund in the proper county treasury, one-half of the fixed-rate     5,671        

levy loss so certified for each year on or before each of the      5,672        

days prescribed for the settlements under divisions (A) and (C)    5,673        

of section 321.24 of the Revised Code.  The county treasurer       5,675        

shall distribute such amounts to the proper joint vocational                    

school district as if they had been levied and collected as                     

taxes, and the joint vocational school district shall apportion    5,676        

the amounts so received among its funds in the same proportions    5,677        

as if those amounts had been levied and collected as taxes.        5,678        

      (E)(1)  Not later than January 1, 2002, for EACH FIXED-SUM   5,680        

LEVY LEVIED BY each school district and OR joint vocational        5,682        

school district AND FOR EACH YEAR FOR WHICH A CERTIFICATION IS     5,683        

MADE UNDER DIVISION (E) OF SECTION 5727.84 OF THE REVISED CODE,    5,684        

the tax commissioner shall certify to the director of budget and                

management the fixed-sum levy loss determined under THAT division  5,686        

(E) of section 5727.84 of the Revised Code.  The certification     5,688        

shall cover a time period sufficient to include all fixed-sum                   

levies in effect in 1998 to June 30, 1999, until they are no       5,689        

longer in effect FOR WHICH THE TAX COMMISSIONER MADE SUCH A        5,690        

DETERMINATION.  The director shall pay from the school district    5,692        

property tax replacement fund to the county undivided income tax   5,693        

fund in the proper county treasury one-half of the fixed-sum levy  5,694        

loss so certified for each year on or before each of the days      5,695        

prescribed for the settlements under divisions (A) and (C) of      5,696        

section 321.24 of the Revised Code.  The county treasurer shall    5,697        

distribute the amounts to the proper school district or joint      5,698        

vocational school district as if they had been levied and          5,699        

collected as taxes, and the district shall apportion the amounts   5,700        

so received among its funds in the same proportions as if those    5,701        

amounts had been levied and collected as taxes.  No payments       5,702        

shall be made under this division once all fixed-sum levies in     5,703        

effect in 1998 to June 30, 1999, are no longer in effect.          5,704        

      (2)  Beginning in 2003 and ending in 2016, by the            5,706        

thirty-first day of January of each year, the tax commissioner     5,707        

                                                          129    


                                                                 
shall review the certification originally made under division      5,709        

(E)(1) of this section.  If the commissioner determines that a     5,710        

fixed-sum levy that had been scheduled to be reimbursed in the     5,711        

current year has expired, a revised certification for that and     5,712        

all subsequent years shall be made to the director of budget and   5,713        

management.                                                        5,714        

      (F)  By August 5, 2002, the tax commissioner shall estimate  5,717        

the amount of money in the school district property tax            5,718        

replacement fund in excess of the amount necessary to make         5,719        

payments in that month under divisions (C), (D), and (E) of this   5,720        

section.  Notwithstanding division (C) of this section, the        5,721        

department of education, in consultation with the tax              5,722        

commissioner and from those excess funds, may pay any school       5,724        

district four and one-half times the amount certified under                     

division (A)(2) of this section.  Payments shall be made in order  5,725        

from the smallest annual loss to the largest annual loss.  A       5,726        

payment made under this division shall be in lieu of the payment   5,728        

to be made in August 2002 under division (C)(2) of this section.   5,729        

No payments shall be made in the manner established in this        5,730        

division to any school district with annual losses from permanent  5,731        

improvement fixed-rate levies in excess of twenty thousand         5,732        

dollars, or annual losses from any other fixed-rate levies in      5,733        

excess of twenty thousand dollars.  A school district receiving a  5,734        

payment under this division is no longer entitled to any further   5,735        

payments under division (C) of this section.                       5,736        

      (G)  On the thirty-first day of July of 2003, 2004, 2005,    5,738        

and 2006, and on the thirty-first day of January and July of 2007  5,740        

and each year thereafter, if the amount credited to the school     5,741        

district property tax replacement fund exceeds the amount needed   5,742        

to make payments from the fund under divisions (C), (D), and (E)   5,743        

of this section in the following month, the director of budget     5,745        

and management shall distribute the excess among school districts  5,747        

and joint vocational school districts.  The amount distributed to  5,750        

each district shall bear the same proportion to the excess         5,751        

                                                          130    


                                                                 
remaining in the fund as the ADM of the district bears to the ADM  5,752        

of all of the districts.  For the purpose of this division, "ADM"  5,753        

means the formula ADM in the case of a school district, and the    5,755        

average daily membership reported under section 3317.03 of the     5,757        

Revised Code in the case of a joint vocational school district.    5,758        

      If, in the opinion of the director of budget and             5,760        

management, the excess remaining in the school district property   5,761        

tax replacement fund in any year is not sufficient to warrant      5,762        

distribution under this division, the excess shall remain to the   5,763

      From the foregoing appropriation item CAP-829, Local         7,747        

Juvenile Detention Centers, the Department of Youth Services       7,749        

shall designate the projects involving the construction and        7,750        

renovation of county and multi-county juvenile detention centers   7,751        

for which the Ohio Building Authority is authorized to issue                    

obligations.                                                       7,752        

      The Department of Youth Services is authorized to review     7,754        

and approve the renovation and construction of projects for which  7,755        

funds are provided.  The proceeds of any obligations authorized    7,756        

under this section shall not be applied to any such facilities     7,757        

that are not designated by the Department of Youth Services.       7,758        

      The Department of Youth Services shall comply with the       7,760        

guidelines set forth below, accept and review applications,        7,762        

designate projects, and determine the amount of state match                     

funding to be applied to each project.  The department shall,      7,763        

with the advice of the county or counties participating in a       7,765        

project, determine the funded design capacity of the detention     7,766        

centers that are designated to receive funding.  Notwithstanding   7,767        

any provisions to the contrary contained in Chapter 152. or 153.   7,768        

of the Revised Code, the Department of Youth Services is                        

authorized to coordinate, review, and monitor the drawdown and     7,769        

use of funds for the renovation and construction of projects for   7,770        

which designated funds are provided.                               7,771        

      (A)  The Department of Youth Services shall develop a        7,773        

weighted numerical formula to determine the amount, if any, of     7,774        

state match that may be provided to a single or multi-county       7,775        

detention center project.  The formula shall include the factors   7,776        

specified below in division (A)(1) of this section and may         7,777        

include the factors specified below in division (A)(2) of this                  

section.  The weight assigned to the factors specified in          7,778        

division (A)(1) of this section shall be no less than twice the    7,779        

weight assigned to factors specified in division (A)(2) of this    7,780        

section.                                                                        

      (1)(a)  The number of detention center beds needed in the    7,782        

                                                          169    


                                                                 
county or group of counties, as estimated by the Department of     7,784        

Youth Services, is significantly more than the number of beds      7,785        

currently available;                                                            

      (b)  Any existing detention center in the county or group    7,787        

of counties does not meet health, safety, or security standards    7,788        

for detention centers as established by the Department of Youth    7,790        

Services;                                                                       

      (c)  The Department of Youth Services projects that the      7,792        

county or group of counties have a need for a sufficient number    7,794        

of detention beds to make the project economically viable.         7,795        

      (2)(a)  The percentage of children in the county or group    7,797        

of counties living below the poverty level is above the state      7,798        

average;                                                                        

      (b)  The per capita income in the county or group of         7,800        

counties is below the state average.                               7,801        

      (B)  The formula developed by the Department of Youth        7,803        

Services shall yield a percentage of state match ranging from 0    7,804        

per cent to 60 per cent based on the above factors.                7,805        

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, if a single county or    7,806        

multi-county system currently has no detention center beds, or if               

the projected need for detention center beds as estimated by the   7,807        

Department of Youth Services is greater than 120 per cent of       7,808        

current detention center bed capacity, then the percentage of      7,809        

state match shall be 60 per cent.  To determine the dollar amount  7,810        

of the state match for new construction projects, the percentage   7,811        

of state match shall be multiplied by $105,000 per bed for         7,812        

detention centers with a designated capacity of 99 beds or less,   7,813        

and by $130,000 per bed for detention centers with a design                     

capacity of 100 beds or more.  To determine the dollar amount of   7,814        

the state match for renovation projects the percentage match       7,815        

shall be multiplied by the actual cost of the renovation,          7,816        

provided that the cost of the renovation does not exceed $80,000   7,817        

per bed.  The funding authorized under this section that may be                 

applied to a construction or renovation project shall not exceed   7,818        

                                                          170    


                                                                 
the actual cost of the project.                                    7,819        

      The funding authorized under this section shall not be       7,821        

applied to any project unless the detention center will be built   7,822        

in compliance with health, safety, and security standards for      7,823        

detention centers as established by the Department of Youth        7,824        

Services.  In addition, the funding authorized under this section               

shall not be applied to the renovation of a detention center       7,825        

unless the renovation is for the purpose of increasing the number  7,826        

of beds in the center, or to meet health, safety, or security      7,827        

standards for detention centers as established by the Department   7,828        

of Youth Services.                                                              

      Section 22.03.  The Ohio Building Authority is hereby        7,830        

authorized to issue and sell, in accordance with the provisions    7,831

heretofore authorized by prior acts of the General Assembly.       7,835        

These authorized obligations shall be issued to pay the costs      7,836        

associated with capital facilities in Sections 22 and 22.02 of     7,837        

this act for the Department of Youth Services, the owners or       7,838

      Section 23.  All items set forth in this section are hereby  7,842        

appropriated out of any moneys in the state treasury to the        7,843        

credit of the Arts Facilities Building Fund (Fund 030).  Revenues  7,845

for which they were appropriated.  The director shall report on    11,613       

the status of such items to the Controlling Board within 30 days   11,614

subtracting the district's exempt DPIA portion from the amount     12,071       

calculated for the district under divisions (C) and (E) of         12,072

      (1)  Calculation of Core Subsidy Entitlements                13,208       

      The calculation of the core subsidy entitlement shall        13,210       

consist of the following components:                               13,211       

      (a)  For each campus and for each fiscal year, the core      13,213       

subsidy entitlement shall be determined by multiplying the         13,214       

amounts listed above in divisions (A)(1) and (2) and (B)(2) less   13,216       

assumed local contributions, by (i) average subsidy-eligible       13,217       

full-time equivalents for the two-year period ending in the prior  13,218       

year for all models except Doctoral I and Doctoral II; and (ii)                 

average subsidy-eligible full-time equivalents for the five-year   13,220       

period ending in the prior year for all models except Doctoral I   13,221       

and Doctoral II.                                                                

      (b)  In calculating the core subsidy entitlements for        13,223       

Medical II models only, the board shall use the following count    13,224       

of full-time equivalent students in place of the two-year average  13,225       

and five-year average of subsidy-eligible students.                13,227

calculations listed in division (C)(1)(a) above and use the                     

greater sum as the core subsidy entitlement.                       13,256       

      The POM subsidy for each campus shall equal the greater of   13,258       

the square-foot-based subsidy or the activity-based POM subsidy    13,259       

component of the core subsidy entitlement, except that the total   13,261       

activity-based POM subsidy shall not exceed 161 per cent of the    13,263       

square-foot based POM subsidy in fiscal year 2000 and shall not    13,266       

exceed 177 per cent of the square-foot-based subsidy in fiscal     13,267       

year 2001.                                                         13,268       

      (e)  In fiscal year 2000, no more than 10.94 per cent of     13,270       

the total instructional subsidy shall be reserved to implement     13,272       

the recommendations of the Graduate Funding Commission.  In        13,273       

fiscal year 2001, no more than 10.75 per cent of the total         13,274       

instructional subsidy shall be reserved for this same purpose.     13,275       

It is the intent of the General Assembly that the doctoral         13,276       

reserve be reduced 0.25 percentage points each year thereafter     13,277       

until no more than 10.0 per cent of the total instructional        13,279       

subsidy is reserved to implement the recommendations of the                     

Graduate Funding Commission.  In fiscal year 2001, the Board of    13,280       

Regents shall reallocate 2 per cent of the reserve among the       13,282       

state-assisted universities on the basis of a quality review as                 

                                                          277    


                                                                 
specified in the recommendations of the Graduate Funding           13,283       

Commission.                                                                     

      The amount so reserved shall be allocated to universities    13,285       

in proportion to their share of the total number of Doctoral I     13,286       

equivalent FTEs as calculated on an institutional basis using the  13,288       

greater of the two-year or five-year FTEs for the period fiscal    13,290       

year 1994 through fiscal year 1998 with annualized FTEs for        13,291       

fiscal years 1994 through 1997 and all-term FTEs for fiscal year   13,292       

1998 as adjusted to reflect the effects of doctoral review.  For   13,294       

the purposes of this calculation, Doctoral I equivalent FTEs       13,295       

shall equal the sum of Doctoral I FTEs plus 1.5 times the sum of   13,297       

Doctoral II FTEs.  No university shall receive less for doctoral   13,298       

subsidy in fiscal year 2000 than it received for doctoral subsidy  13,299       

in fiscal year 1999.                                               13,300

      Sec. 37.04.  Business Development                            14,850       

      The foregoing appropriation item 195-412, Business           14,852       

Development Grants, shall be used as an incentive for attracting   14,853       

and retaining business opportunities for the state.  Any such      14,854       

business opportunity, whether new, expanding, or relocating in     14,855       

Ohio, is eligible for funding.  The project must create or retain  14,856       

a significant number of jobs for Ohioans.  Grant awards may be     14,857       

considered only when (1) the project's viability hinges on an      14,858       

award of 195-412, Business Development Grants, funds; (2) all      14,859       

other public or private sources of financing have been             14,860       

considered; or (3) the funds must act as a catalyst for the        14,861       

infusion into the project of other financing sources.              14,862       

      The department's primary goal shall be to award funds to     14,864       

political subdivisions of the state for off-site infrastructure    14,865       

improvements.  In order to meet the particular needs of economic   14,866       

development in a region, the department may elect to award funds   14,867       

directly to a business for on-site infrastructure improvements.    14,869       

Infrastructure improvements are defined as improvements to water   14,870       

system facilities, sewer and sewage treatment facilities,          14,871       

electric or gas service facilities, FIBER OPTIC FACILITIES, rail   14,872

facilities, site preparation, and parking facilities.  The         14,873       

Director of Development may recommend the funds be used in an      14,874       

alternative manner when deemed appropriate to meet an              14,875       

extraordinary economic development opportunity or need.            14,876       

      The foregoing appropriation item 195-412, Business           14,878

a request to the Controlling Board by the Department of            14,880       

Development outlining the planned use of the funds, and the        14,881       

subsequent approval of the request by the Controlling Board.       14,882

      Section 84.  Except as otherwise specifically provided in    16,815       

this act, the codified and uncodified sections of law contained    16,816       

in this act, and the items of law of which the codified and        16,817       

uncodified sections of law contained in this act are composed,     16,818       

are subject to the referendum.  Therefore, under Ohio              16,819       

Constitution, Article II, Section 1c and section 1.471 of the                   

Revised Code, the codified and uncodified sections of law          16,820       

contained in this act, and the items of law of which the codified  16,821       

and uncodified sections of law contained in this act are           16,822       

                                                          339    


                                                                 
composed, take effect on the ninety-first day after this act is    16,823       

filed with the Secretary of State.  If, however, a referendum                   

petition is filed against any such codified or uncodified section  16,824       

of law contained in this act, or against any item of law of which  16,825       

any such codified or uncodified section of law contained in this   16,826       

act is composed, the codified or uncodified section of law, or     16,827       

item of law, unless rejected at the referendum, takes effect at    16,828       

the earliest time permitted by law.                                             

      Section 85.  The amendments of this act to sections          16,830       

1547.72, 3109.401, 3317.022, 3317.0212, 3332.05, 3332.06,          16,832       

3333.29, and 3734.281 of the Revised Code are not subject to the   16,833       

referendum.  Therefore, under Ohio Constitution, Article II,       16,834       

Section 1d and section 1.471 of the Revised Code, such sections    16,835       

as amended go into immediate effect when this act becomes law.     16,836       

      Section 86.  Section 5117.071 of the Revised Code, as        16,838       

amended by this act, takes effect July 1, 2000.                    16,839       

      Section 87.  The amendments of this act to Section 18 of     16,842       

Am. Sub. H.B. 650 of the 122nd General Assembly (as subsequently   16,843       

amended); to Section 5.05 of Am. Sub. H.B. 163 of the 123rd        16,844       

General Assembly; to Sections 4, 4.01, 4.07, 4.10, 4.13, 7.01,     16,845       

11, and 17 of Am. Sub. H.B. 282 of the 123rd General Assembly;     16,846       

and to Sections 15, 21, 24, 28, 29, 37, 37.12, 37.14, 55.07, 64,

of the 123rd General Assembly are not subject to the referendum.   16,849       

Therefore, under Ohio Constitution, Article II, Section 1d and     16,850       

section 1.471 of the Revised Code, such sections as amended go     16,851       

into immediate effect when this act becomes law.                   16,852       

      Section 88.  If amendment of a section of law is subject to  16,854       

the referendum, corresponding indications in the amending and      16,855       

existing repeal clauses commanding the amendment also are subject  16,856       

to the referendum, along with the amendment.  If amendment of a    16,857       

section of law is not subject to the referendum, corresponding     16,858       

indications in the amending and existing repeal clauses            16,859       

commanding the amendment also are not subject to the referendum,   16,860       

                                                          340    


                                                                 
the same as the amendment.                                         16,861       

      Section 89.  Sections 169.02, 329.07, 3109.401, 3314.08,     16,863       

5101.325, 5107.05, 5107.161, 5107.162, and 5111.23 of the Revised  16,864       

Code are amended by this act and also by H.B. 471 of the 123rd     16,865       

General Assembly effective July 1, 2000.  The amendments of H.B.   16,866       

471 are included in this act to confirm the intention to retain    16,867       

them, but they are not intended to be effective until July 1,      16,868       

2000.                                                                           

      Section 5101.35 of the Revised Code is amended by this act   16,871       

and also by Am. Sub. H.B. 470 of the 123rd General Assembly        16,872       

effective July 1, 2000.  The amendments of H.B. 470 are included                

in this act to confirm the intention to retain them, but they are  16,873       

not intended to be effective until July 1, 2000.                   16,874       

      Section 90.  Section 3317.02 of the Revised Code is          16,876       

presented in this act as a composite of the section as amended by  16,877       

both Am. Sub. H.B. 281 and Am. Sub. H.B. 282 of the 123rd General  16,878       

Assembly, with the new language of neither of the acts shown in    16,879       

capital letters.  Section 4506.01 of the Revised Code is           16,880       

presented in this act as a composite of the section as amended by  16,881       

both Am. Sub. S.B. 66 and Am. Sub. S.B. 213 of the 122nd General   16,882       

Assembly, with the new language of neither of the acts shown in                 

capital letters.  This is in recognition of the principle stated   16,884       

in division (B) of section 1.52 of the Revised Code that such      16,885       

amendments are to be harmonized where not substantively            16,886       

irreconcilable and constitutes a legislative finding that such is  16,887       

the resulting version in effect prior to the effective date of     16,888       

this act.                                                                       

      Section 91.  If any item of law that constitutes the whole   16,890       

or part of a codified or uncodified section of law contained in    16,891       

this act, or if any application of any item of law that            16,892       

constitutes the whole or part of a codified or uncodified section  16,893       

of law contained in this act, is held invalid, the invalidity      16,894       

does not affect other items of law or applications of items of     16,895       

law that can be given effect without the invalid item of law or    16,896       

                                                          341    


                                                                 
applications.  To this end, the items of law of which the          16,897       

codified and uncodified sections contained in this act are                      

composed, and their applications, are independent and severable.   16,898
