Ohio Department of Education officials say they have forwarded allegations of sexual misconduct, test tampering and other possible criminal misdeeds at a Dayton charter school to Montgomery County Children Services and Dayton police.
In his official report on the data scrubbing scandal in Columbus City Schools, State auditor David Yost says the district deliberately - and possibly criminally - changed grades, erased absences, and manipulated enrollment figures in order to make the district look better.
State Auditor David Yost says data scrubbing in the Columbus City Schools painted a false picture of district accomplishments, and may have cheated some students out of the chance for charter school vouchers or federally subsidized tutoring.
A day after a measure blocking the Republican State Auditor from auditing Governor John Kasich's private job creation entity JobsOhio passed the Ohio House, Auditor David Yost got some support from members of the opposition party in the Senate.
Columbus Police officers this morning seized records wanted by the state auditor as part of his probe of the Columbus City Schools' attendance data tampering scandal, and his probe of alleged grade changing at Linden-McKinley High School.
