3318.033 Recalculation of district percentile ranking.

(A) As used in this section:

(1) "Formula ADM" has the same meaning as in section 3317.02 of the Revised Code.

(2) "Open enrollment net gain" has the same meaning as in section 3318.011 of the Revised Code.

(B) This section applies to each school district that meets the following criteria:

(1) The Ohio school facilities commission certified its conditional approval of the district's project under sections 3318.01 to 3318.20 of the Revised Code after July 1, 2006, and prior to September 29, 2007, and the project had not been completed as of September 29, 2007.

(2) Within one year after the date of the commission's certification of its conditional approval, the district's electors approved a bond issue to pay the district's portion of the basic project cost or the district board of education complied with section 3318.052 of the Revised Code.

(3) In the fiscal year prior to the fiscal year in which the district's project was conditionally approved, the district had an open enrollment net gain that was ten per cent or more of its formula ADM.

(C) For each school district to which this section applies, the department of education shall recalculate the district's percentile ranking under section 3318.011 of the Revised Code for the fiscal year prior to the fiscal year in which the district's project was conditionally approved and shall report the recalculated percentile ranking to the commission. For this purpose, the department shall recalculate every school district's percentile ranking for that fiscal year using the district's "valuation per pupil" as that term is defined in section 3318.011 of the Revised Code on and after September 29, 2007.

(D) For each school district to which this section applies, the commission shall use the recalculated percentile ranking reported under division (C) of this section to determine the district's portion of the basic project cost under section 3318.032 of the Revised Code. The commission shall not use the recalculated percentile ranking for any other purpose, and the recalculated ranking shall not affect any other district's portion of the basic project cost under section 3318.032 of the Revised Code or any district's eligibility for assistance under sections 3318.01 to 3318.20 of the Revised Code. The commission shall revise the agreement entered into under section 3318.08 of the Revised Code to reflect the district's new portion of the basic project cost as determined under this division.
