The state’s largest teachers union is urging tough scrutiny on a change of status for the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow. As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, the union says it’s up to the Ohio education department to make sure the state isn’t duped by the online charter school.

The Ohio Education Association sent a letter to the state, asking it to make sure the ECOT meets all requirements before allowing it to become a dropout recovery school.

The Ohio Department of Education says its latest audit of the state’s largest online charter school shows it once again inflated its attendance. That means ECOT owes another big bill for the students it was paid to educate – but the state says it didn’t.

The Department of Education says its review of attendance records for the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow show ECOT claimed 18.5 percent more student participation last school year than could be verified.
