    Summary

    The Community Schools Classroom Facilities Grant (Round 3) is open to community schools located in Ohio, operators that operate schools in Ohio and operators that exclusively operate schools outside the State of Ohio. However, operators that only operate schools outside Ohio must complete an eligibility application that will be used to determine whether the entity qualifies to apply for the grant.


    The grant guidelines require the funds to be awarded to those individual schools and community school operators that are deemed ‘high performing'. An Ohio school is considered high performing if it meets one of the following criteria:

    • The school received a grade of "A," "B," or "C" for the performance index score under division (C)(1)(b) of section 3302.03 of the Revised Code or using 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 report card data, has increased its performance index score under division (C)(1)(b) of section 3302.03 of the Revised Code in each of the previous three years of operation; and has received a grade of "A" or "B" for the value-added progress dimension under division (C)(1)(e) of section 3302.03 of the Revised Code on its most recent report card rating issued under that section.
    • The school serves only grades kindergarten through three and received a grade of "A" or "B" for making progress in improving literacy in grades kindergarten through three under division (C)(1)(g) of section 3302.03 of the Revised Code on its most recent report card issued under that section.
    • The school serves as a Dropout Prevention and Recovery Community School and received a rating of "exceeds standards" on its most recent report card issued under section 3314.017 of the Revised Code.
