In the case of a child placed in the custody of a juvenile facility established under section 2151.65 or a detention facility established under section 2152.41 of the Revised Code, if that facility contracts directly with an educational service center for services for that child, the service center may submit its request for payment for services for the child directly to the school district that is responsible to bear the cost of educating the child, as determined under section 2151.362 of the Revised Code. That district shall pay the service center directly for those services. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in section 3317.03 of the Revised Code, the district that pays a service center for services for a particular child under this section shall include that child in the district's average daily membership as reported under division (A) of section 3317.03 of the Revised Code. No other district shall include the child in its average daily membership.
