Payments and deductions under this section for fiscal years 2012 and 2013 shall be made in accordance with section 3314.088 of the Revised Code.
(A) As used in this section:
(1) "All-day kindergarten" has the same meaning as in section 3317.029 of the Revised Code.
(2) "Formula amount" has the same meaning as in section 3317.02 of the Revised Code.
(B) Except as provided in division (C) of this section, the department of education annually shall pay each community school established under this chapter one-half of the formula amount for each student to whom both of the following apply:
(1) The student is entitled to attend school under section 3313.64 or 3313.65 of the Revised Code in a school district that is eligible to receive a payment under division (D) of section 3317.029 of the Revised Code if it provides all-day kindergarten;
(2) The student is reported by the community school as enrolled in all-day kindergarten at the community school.
(C) The department shall make no payments under this section to any internet- or computer-based community school.
(D) If a student for whom payment is made under division (B) of this section is entitled to attend school in a district that receives any payment for all-day kindergarten under division (D) of section 3317.029 of the Revised Code, the department shall deduct the payment to the community school under this section from the amount paid that school district under that division. If that school district does not receive payment for all-day kindergarten under that division because it does not provide all-day kindergarten, the department shall pay the community school from state funds appropriated generally for poverty-based assistance to school districts.
(E) The department shall adjust the amounts deducted from school districts and paid to community schools under this section to reflect any enrollments of students in all-day kindergarten in community schools for less than the equivalent of a full school year.
