A BILL
To amend Section 733.10 of Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly to permit payment in fiscal year 2015 to school districts and STEM schools that exceed, by up to four days, the number of permitted "calamity" days in fiscal year 2014 and to declare an emergency.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1. That Section 733.10 of Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly be amended to read as follows:
Sec. 733.10. Notwithstanding section 3317.01 of the Revised Code, as amended by this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly, to determine whether a school district or STEM school established under Chapter 3326. of the Revised Code satisfied the minimum school year in the 2013-2014 school year in order to qualify for state funding under Chapter 3317. or 3326. of the Revised Code for fiscal year 2015, the Department of Education shall apply the criteria prescribed in the version of division (B) of section 3317.01 of the Revised Code in effect prior to July 1, 2014. However, no school district or STEM school shall be denied payments under Chapter 3317. or 3326. of the Revised Code for fiscal year 2015 solely because any school operated by the district or the STEM school was open for instruction during the 2013-2014 school year for not more than four days fewer than the number of days required by the versions of sections 3313.48, 3313.481, and 3317.01 of the Revised Code in effect prior to July 1, 2014, if the reason the school was not open for the required number of days was due to any of the reasons set forth in division (B) of that version of section 3317.01 of the Revised Code.
Section 2.  That existing Section 733.10 of Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly is hereby repealed.
Section 3.  For determining payments for fiscal years 2014 and 2015, the Department of Education shall continue to waive the number of hours or days of learning opportunities not offered to a student by a community school, established under Chapter 3314. of the Revised Code, for the reasons set forth in division (H)(4) of section 3314.08 of the Revised Code, so long as the school was actually open for instruction with students in attendance for not less than the minimum hours required under Chapter 3314. of the Revised Code.
Section 4.  This act is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety. The reason for the necessity is that immediate action is necessary to avoid delays in fiscal year 2015 payments to school districts and STEM schools that exceeded the number of permitted calamity days in fiscal year 2014 because of a public calamity. Therefore, this act shall go into immediate effect.
