In fulfilling its obligation to provide monitoring and oversight, the department shall consider evidence provided by an accrediting association if the school is accredited by an association whose standards have been reviewed by the state superintendent's advisory committee on chartered nonpublic schools and approved by the state board of education pursuant to paragraph (A)(1) of 3301-35-09 of the Administrative Code.

(B) If a determination is made by the department that a nonpublic school is not in compliance with rule 3301-35-09 of the Administrative Code or other applicable Ohio laws and rules and the nonpublic school does not fully address all compliance issues within the time period specified in a corrective active plan established by the department, the nonpublic school shall be notified of the department's intent to recommend to the state board of education that its charter be revoked, and of the nonpublic school's right to a hearing pursuant to Chapter 119. of the Revised Code.

(C) Upon conclusion of the hearing and consideration of a designated hearing officer's report and recommendation, the state board may approve or deny the recommendation of the department and revoke the charter of the nonpublic school.
