Rule 5101:14-1-07 | Comprehensive case management and employment program: primary performance measures.
(A) What are the comprehensive case management and employment (CCMEP) primary performance measures?
There are seven primary performance measures for each lead agency:
(1) The percentage of program participants that are in unsubsidized employment, education, or training activities at exit.
(2) The percentage of program participants that are in unsubsidized employment, education, or training activities during the second quarter after exit.
(3) The percentage of program participants that are in unsubsidized employment, education, or training activities during the fourth quarter after exit.
(4) The percentage of program participants that were in an education or training program while enrolled in CCMEP who obtain a recognized post-secondary credential, or a secondary school diploma or its recognized equivalent during participation in or within one year after exit from CCMEP. A program participant who has attained a secondary school diploma or its recognized equivalent can only be included in this measure if the program participant is also employed or is enrolled in an education or training program leading to a recognized postsecondary credential within one year after exit from the program.
(5) The median earnings of program participants who are in unsubsidized employment during the second quarter after exit.
(6) The effectiveness in serving employers.
(7) The percentage of program participants who are in an education or training program that leads to a recognized postsecondary credential, a secondary school diploma or its recognized equivalent, or employment and who are achieving measurable skill gains toward such a credential or employment. Measurable skill gains are documented academic, technical, occupational, or other forms of progress. If measuring educational functioning level (EFL) gains after program enrollment, an approved department of education national reporting system assessment must be used for both the EFL pre-test and post-test to determine an individuals educational functioning level.
(B) What are the performance standards the lead agency must meet in the administration of CCMEP?
(1) Lead agency performance standards for each county are established in accordance with a biennial negotiation process established by the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS).
(2) The negotiation of biennial lead agency performance standards by county shall be concluded prior to July first and shall include:
(b) The lead agency in partnership with the local board, and
(c) The board of county commissioners.
(C) What are the consequences to the lead agency for failing to meet the performance standards set forth in paragraph (B) of this rule?
(1) ODJFS may require the responsible lead agency to comply with a corrective action plan pursuant to a time schedule specified by ODJFS. The corrective action plan shall be established or approved by ODJFS and require a lead agency to commit to the plan existing resources identified by ODJFS.
(2) When the lead agency does not comply with a corrective action plan, ODJFS may perform, or contract with a government or private entity for the entity to perform, the family services duty and the workforce development activity until ODJFS is confident that the responsible lead agency can perform the duty satisfactorily. If ODJFS performs or contracts with an entity to perform a family services duty under division (C)(5) of section 5101.24 of the Revised Code and workforce development activity under division (C)(4) of section 5101.241 of the Revised Code, ODJFS may do either or both of the following:
(a) Spend funds in the county treasury appropriated by the board of county commissioners for the duty;
(b) Withhold funds allocated or reimbursements due to the responsible lead agency for the duty and spend the funds for the duty.
(D) May a program participant be excluded from the CCMEP primary performance measures?
A program participant who meets one of the following exclusion reasons may be excluded from the primary performance measures described in paragraph (A) of this rule:
(1) Incarceration or institutionalization. The program participant is residing in an institution or facility providing twenty-four hour support (e.g., jail, prison, hospital or treatment center) for at least a ninety calendar day period that includes the date of exit.
(2) Death. The program participant was not living on the date of exit.
(3) The program participant was exited from CCMEP in accordance with paragraph (A)(2) of rule 5101:14-1-06 of the Administrative Code.
(4) The program participant is in the foster care system as defined in 45 C.F.R. 1355.20(a) (01/2012), and exits the program because the program participant has moved from the local workforce area as part of such a program or system.
(5) The program participant exits because he or she is a member of the national guard or other reserve military unit of the armed forces and is called to active duty for at least ninety calendar days.
