Section 3317.163 | Career-technical education ADM calculation for students in credential-only programs.


(A) As used in this section:

(1) "Credential-only program" means an industry-approved credentialing program, or a series of such programs, offered by a dropout recovery community school in which students enrolled in grades eleven and twelve may earn an industry-recognized credential approved under section 3313.6113 of the Revised Code. The program, or programs, shall align with a career-technical education program approved under section 3317.161 of the Revised Code. The dropout recovery community school shall offer the program, or programs, using classroom teachers employed by the school.

(2) "Dropout recovery community school" has the same meaning as in section 3319.301 of the Revised Code.

(B) Notwithstanding any provision of Chapter 3317. of the Revised Code to the contrary, all of the following shall apply:

(1) For the purposes of sections 3317.014, 3317.022, and 3317.026 of the Revised Code, the department of education and workforce shall adjust the career-technical education ADM of a dropout recovery community school that offers a credential-only program so that each student enrolled in that program is included only in the school's category one career-technical education ADM, regardless of whether the credential-only program includes programs described in division (A)(1) of section 3317.014 of the Revised Code.

(2) For funding purposes, the department shall count each student enrolled in a credential-only program as a full-time student.

(3) A dropout recovery community school that offers a credential-only program may provide support services to students who graduate from the school to assist them in securing post-secondary placement opportunities, including careers with state, regional, or local labor organizations. For that purpose, the school may use a portion of the career-technical education funds received under section 3317.022 of the Revised Code to provide recent graduates, in the year following their graduation from the school, with short-term, emergency financial assistance for expenses related to child care, housing, food insecurity, transportation, and services including but not limited to health care, dental care, mental health care, and addiction treatment services.
