Whistleblower: School used software to get more state money

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Education regulators are reviewing a whistleblower's claim that Ohio's then-largest online charter school intentionally inflated attendance figures tied to its state funding using software it purchased after previous allegations of attendance inflation, The Associated Press has learned.

A former technology employee of the now-shuttered Electronic Classroom for Tomorrow said he told the Ohio Department of Education last year that school officials ordered staff to manipulate student data with software obtained following the state's demand that it return $60 million in overpayments for the 2015-2016 school year.
