(A) As used in this section, "partnering community school" means a community school established under Chapter 3314. of the Revised Code that is located within the territory of a municipal school district and that either is sponsored by the district or is a party to an agreement with the district whereby the district and the community school endorse each other's programs.
(B) The board of education of each municipal school district and the governing authority of each partnering community school shall require each of its schools offering grades nine to twelve to establish a student advisory committee to make recommendations as prescribed in this division. The principal of the school and, if applicable, representatives of the teachers' labor organization who are employed in the school shall determine the composition of the committee and the process for selecting committee members, which shall allow for all students enrolled in the school to be informed about, and involved in, member selection.
The committee shall make regular recommendations, but at least semiannually, regarding the following:
(1) Strategies to improve teaching and learning at the school;
(2) How to use technology in the classroom to engage students in the learning process;
(3) Strategies to encourage high-achieving students to work with underperforming students to improve the school's academic culture and graduation rate;
(4) Ways in which students may improve the behavior of other students and reduce incidents of bullying and other disruptive conduct;
(5) Procedures for monitoring the progress of the changes implemented;
(6) Any other issues requested by school personnel or the board or governing authority.
(C) The student advisory committee shall provide copies of its recommendations to the district chief executive officer, the school principal, and, if applicable, the person designated to be the representative of the teachers' labor organization for the school. The board or governing authority shall post the recommendations on the district's or school's web site.
