(A) Within ninety days of September 28, 1999, the superintendent of public instruction shall appoint representatives of the department of education, including employees who work with the education management information system, to a committee to develop report card models for community schools. The committee shall design model report cards appropriate for the various types of community schools approved to operate in the state. Sufficient models shall be developed to reflect the variety of grade levels served and the missions of the state's community schools. All models shall include both financial and academic data. The initial models shall be developed by March 31, 2000.
(B) Except as provided in section 3314.017 of the Revised Code, the department of education shall issue an annual report card for each community school, regardless of how long the school has been in operation. The report card shall report the academic and financial performance of the school utilizing one of the models developed under division (A) of this section. The report card shall include all information applicable to school buildings under divisions (A), (B), (C), and (D) of section 3302.03 of the Revised Code. The ratings a community school receives under section 3302.03 of the Revised Code for its first two full school years shall not be considered toward automatic closure of the school under section 3314.35 of the Revised Code or any other matter that is based on report card ratings.
(C) Upon receipt of a copy of a contract between a sponsor and a community school entered into under this chapter, the department of education shall notify the community school of the specific model report card that will be used for that school.
(D) Report cards shall be distributed to the parents of all students in the community school, to the members of the board of education of the school district in which the community school is located, and to any person who requests one from the department.
