Republican Auditor Dave Yost questioned the department's role while releasing an audit Thursday that found ECOT inflated the amount of time students spent learning by failing to deduct the time students were inactive online.

According to the audit, ECOT failed to deduct time students were inactive online.

State auditors also discovered that ECOT provided no proof to show students engaged in learning during the time it claimed for payment. The audit also criticized the education department for being satisfied with ECOT's claims of student engagement.

"Our auditors documented that ECOT officials had the ability to provide honest, accurate information to the state and they chose not to", Auditor Yost said. "I believe this may rise to a criminal act", Yost added.

Yost also is ordering three for-profit companies owned by ECOT founder Bill Lager or his daughter to repay the school almost $250,000 for improperly spending taxpayer money on political attack ads.

The Ohio Department of Education is pushing back against the state auditor's suggestions that it accepted "watered down" information from the state's then-largest online charter school.

As ECOT battled the department both in public and the courts, it launched a television ad campaign that urged the department to keep ECOT open and accused the department of wanting to end school choice and not caring about ECOT students.
