3301-44-07 Calculating full-time enrollment.

(A) A student in grade nine may not enroll in college courses for which the student elects under division (B) of section 3365.04 of the Revised Code to receive credit toward high school graduation for more than the equivalent of four academic school years.

(B) A student in grade ten enrolling for the first time in college courses for which the student elects under division (B) of section 3365.04 of the Revised Code to receive credit toward high school graduation may not enroll for more than the equivalent of three academic school years.

(C) A student in grade eleven enrolling for the first time in college courses for which the student elects under division (B) of section 3365.04 of the Revised Code to receive credit toward high school graduation may not enroll for more than the equivalent of two academic school years.

(D) A student in grade twelve enrolling for the first time in college courses for which the student elects under division (B) of section 3365.04 of the Revised Code to receive credit toward high school graduation may not enroll for more than the equivalent of one academic school year.

(E) The restrictions specified in paragraphs (A), (B), (C) and (D) of this rule shall be reduced proportionately for any such student who enrolls in the program during the course of a school year.

(F) The method for determining whether a student is enrolled full-time in the student's high school and/or joint vocational school shall be that the student is scheduled at the high school and/or joint vocational school for the total number of courses that might be scheduled using the total number of periods available during an official school day at the home school district, community school, or nonpublic high school, less the standard lunch period.

(G) The maximum number of Carnegie units that constitutes a student's educational program during an academic school year shall be the sum of the Carnegie units scheduled at the high school, joint vocational school, and college, and shall not exceed the number of Carnegie units that might be scheduled using the total number of periods available at the high school during an official school day, less the standard lunch period.

(H) Conversion of units of high school graduation credit earned through successful completion of joint vocational school programs to Carnegie units required for high school graduation shall be accomplished as follows:

(1) The joint vocational school will determine the full-time equivalency in the joint vocational school of each participating student and report such information to the student's resident school district or community school.

(2) The resident school district or community school will multiply the full-time equivalency for each student (as reported by the joint vocational school) by the total number of periods (excluding the standard lunch period) available at the high school to determine the number of Carnegie units earned at the joint vocational school.

(I) Conversion of units of high school graduation credit earned through successful completion of college courses elected for such credit as specified in paragraph (B) of rule 3301-44-05 of the Administrative Code to Carnegie units required for high school graduation shall be accomplished using one of the following methods:

(1) College courses for which five semester hours (seven and one-half quarter hours) of credit are earned shall be awarded one Carnegie unit toward high school graduation; fractional Carnegie units shall be awarded proportionately.

(2) College courses shall be substituted for courses required for high school graduation based upon comparability of content and without regard to instructional time. The Carnegie units awarded shall be the same as if the comparable course were taught in the district school.

(3) A locally developed alternative method approved by the state superintendent of public instruction.

(J) The resident school district or community school shall confirm with the Ohio department of education, the joint vocational school, and with each college in which a student from the resident school or community school district enrolls, the percentage of full-time equivalency the student represents for the district, the joint vocational school, and the college as calculated in rule 3301-44-08 of the Administrative Code.
