The Ohio State Board of Education is required by state law to "formulate and prescribe minimum standards to be applied to all elementary and secondary schools in the state." This document, the first in a series, presents the revised minimum standards (effective September 1983) established by the State Board of Education for Ohio schools, under the direction of a 34-member advisory committee representing educators, parents, other citizens, and students. The first section provides definitions of key terms used throughout the document. The second section outlines curricular requirements for the K-12 educational program. The third section provides guidelines for allocating educational resources. The fourth section prescribes minimum standards for nonpublic schools, and the fifth defines the "special purpose school," for which it sets minimum standards. The sixth section outlines procedures for beginning a new school and for changing location or ownership of a school. Procedures for evaluation are provided in the seventh section. The eighth and final section outlines minimum standards for the nonchartered, non-tax-supported school. (TE)
