Changes to Operating Standards: Educational Service Personnel

OAAE Statement regarding action taken by State Board of Education concerning the Operating Standards for Ohio Schools: On December 9, 2014, the State Board of Education approved, by a 14-5 vote, an “Intent to Adopt Resolution” regarding revised Administrative Code Rules 3301-35-01 through 10, entitled Operating Standards for Ohio Schools and Districts in Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade. In the weeks leading up to this vote, the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education (OAAE) worked with members of the State Board of Education to develop a “compromise amendment” to address our most serious concerns with revised Rule 3301-35-05 (A)(3) Educational Service Personnel; Rule 3301-35-01 (B)(13) Definitions-Educational Service Personnel, that had been passed out of Committee to the full board. In addition to significant changes to the content of the revised rules, we also asked for a new section to direct the State Board’s Accountability Committee to develop a method to report on the state report card the total number of educational service personnel employed in each area by district, school, and state and per 1,000 or less students. The amendment the OAAE helped to craft with SBE members Ron Rudduck, Mike Collins, and other SBE members, and with input from numerous statewide stakeholder groups, was approved on December 9, 2014, before the Intent To Adopt resolution was approved.
