>1) Does one parent have to be residential parent for school
If so, then this designation is required by OH law, because it's not common in the jurisdictions with which I'm familiar.

Call an OH attorney.
>3) What does it mean to be the residential parent for school
>purposes with joint custody
I'm guessing that this means that the designated parent has authority to determine the school in which the child will attend, and/or that this parent's residence will be the one that the school district will use to determine the child's school for enrollment purposes.
>4)Are there pros and cons of letting her be the residential

Obviously, if the other parent gets to determine the school that the child will attend, then you don't.
