The director of health shall request a student data verification code from the independent contractor engaged by the department of education to create and maintain such codes for school districts and community schools under division (D)(2) of section 3301.0714 of the Revised Code for each child who is receiving services under division (A)(2) of section 3701.61 of the Revised Code and who is about to become eligible for special education and related services under Chapter 3323. of the Revised Code. The director shall request from the parent, guardian, or custodian of the child, or from any other person who is authorized by law to make decisions regarding the child's education, the name and address of the public school in which the child will be enrolled for special education and related services under Chapter 3323. of the Revised Code. The director shall submit the data verification code for that child to that public school at the time the child ceases to receive services under division (A)(2) of section 3701.61 of the Revised Code and begins to receive special education and related services under Chapter 3323. of the Revised Code.
The director and each school that receives a data verification code under this section shall not release that code to any person except as provided by law. Any document that the director holds in the director's files that contains both a child's name or other personally identifiable information and the child's data verification code shall not be a public record under section 149.43 of the Revised Code.
