Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) Rule Comments

Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) Rule Comments

The Ohio Department of Education staff drafts and edits administrative rules, which have not yet been formally proposed for adoption by the State Board of Education or the state superintendent. During the initial drafting of rules, every effort is made to solicit input from affected organizations and individuals. Upon posting the draft rules, the Department sends out e-notification alerts to interested parties. Rules may be posted through the lieutenant governor’s Common Sense Initiative office, if applicable. For rules that go through the Common Sense Initiative process, the review concludes with a formal report clearing the way for the Department to file the rules with the Joint Commission on Agency Rule Review or recommend further changes. If the Common Sense Initiative process does not apply, the rules are filed with the Joint Commission on Agency Rule Review.

The rules for review are listed below:

 

OAC 3301-37-04 "Staff" 

This rule is being amended as a result of House Bill 49, 132nd General Assembly, which requires the State Board of Education’s rules to require the staffing ratios for programs with preschool children with disabilities to be in accordance with Ohio Revised Code §3323.022.  
 
Comment deadline: January 19, 2018​

OAC 3301-51-11 "Preschool children eligible for special education"
This rule is being amended as a result of House Bill 49, 132nd General Assembly, which requires the State Board of Education’s rules to require the staffing ratios for programs with preschool children with disabilities to be in accordance with ORC §3323.022. 
 
 OAC 3301-25-10 titled "One year instructional assistant permit; renewal thereof" is being proposed to set forth a registered provider’s training and supervisory requirements.  
 
  OAC 3301-85-01 titled "Distribution of payment for the purchase of school buses" is being rescinded due to the removal of language in section 3317.07 of the Ohio Revised Code that provided the Department of Education the authority to draft and adopt rules, and because funds have not been allocated for the purchasing of school buses for several years.
