Audit Shows Former ECOT Owes State of Ohio Over $117-million

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--An audit from the state of Ohio shows that the former Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow owes the state over $117-million.

Ohio Auditor of State Keith Faber released a report Tuesday detailing the expenses incurred by the now-defunct online charter school.

The amount includes over $106-million to the Ohio Department of Education, and over $10-million for the Ohio Attorney General's Office.

ECOT was founded in 2000, and eventually became the largest online charter school in the state, but there were issues with attendance data for the school, specifically how many hours students were spending online.

The school shut down in 2018.
