COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A statewide audit following evidence of manipulation of attendance reporting in some Ohio school districts is set for release Feb. 11.
Ohio Auditor Dave Yost says in a statement that fieldwork has been completed. He says there are now consultations under way with the Ohio Department of Education and with school districts that appear to have "scrubbed" attendance data.
The audit began after an internal audit found irregular practices in Columbus City Schools, and questionable practices also surfaced at Toledo Public Schools and the Cincinnati-area Lockland City Schools.
The schools reportedly were trying to improve state performance ratings.
