Community Schools Forms
This page contains miscellaneous guidelines, forms, training courses and data tools to assist community school administrators with the performance of their daily duties and with finance-related reporting.
Community schools are required to submit five year forecasts twice annually to the Ohio Department of Education according to O.A.C. 3301-92-04. The five-year forecast serves as a tool to assess the financial health of each community school. The five-year forecast spreadsheet is now standardized for all community schools. Please follow this link for the guidance document and the five-year forecast template.

CALAMITY DAYS - MAKEUP PLANS
If a community school has more hours on its school calendar than the minimum 920 hours required by statute and the community school declares a calamity day for a reason outlined in ORC 3306.01 and 3317.01, then the community school is not required to make up the time for this closure provided the minimum number of 920 hours required by statute is maintained.
Catastrophic Aid is a supplemental payment to districts, joint vocational schools, and community schools for special educational students in categories two through six.
