ECOT

"The State of Ohio"

The heated dispute between the state and its largest online charter school reached a boiling point this week with a judge’s order for ECOT to turn over its student log-in data. But the e-school is refusing to back down.

The state’s education department won a major battle over the attendance fight with ECOT, Ohio’s largest online charter school. 

The state’s education department is asking a court to force its largest online school to hand over log-in information. But the e-school known as ECOT says it’s not ready to budge and claims the state has been mishandling their attendance audit for months.

The Speaker of the Ohio House is in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention. And while presidential politics are in the spotlight, he hasn’t been able to escape questions about the online charter school ECOT, which is refusing to turn over records on attendance of some 15,000 students to the Ohio Department of Education.

Ohio’s largest online charter school is firing back against state officials who say they don’t have enough information to perform an attendance audit. The Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, or ECOT, says it won’t hand over student log-in times unless a judge tells them to. 

The Ohio Department of Education has started its audit of student attendance at the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, after a judge denied ECOT’s request to stop that audit yesterday. But questions about the laws that govern charter schools have supporters and opponents once again calling for changes.

The state’s largest and most controversial online charter school has sued to block the state from a delayed attendance audit that was supposed to start today, and could end up costing it millions of dollars.
