    Correct because of the definition of "school safety zone" in ORC. However, federal law defines "school safety zone" to include the 1000' extension from school property. I'm not aware of any open carrier ever being prosecuted under Federal law, but as a technicality, they could be.

    A letter from the AG specifically states you can on grounds, but not in a building.

    3. A board of county commissioners may not prohibit a person licensed to
    carry a concealed handgun under R.C. 2923.125 or R.C. 2923.1213 from
    carrying a concealed handgun on property that is not within a building

    In addition, a board of county commissioners may not prohibit a person licensed to carry
    a concealed handgun under R.C. 2923.125 or R.C. 2923.1213 from carrying a concealed
    handgun on property that is not within a building. Charging a fee for admission to an event on
    property that is not within a building does not permit a board of county commissioners to
    prohibit a person licensed to carry a concealed handgun
    under R.C. 2923.125 or R.C. 2923.1213
    from carrying a concealed handgun on the property.
