Ohio auditor to report head counts from 30 charter schools

State Auditor Dave Yost is preparing to release results of head counts of students taken during unannounced site visits to 30 Ohio community schools last fall.

Yost says the attendance checks conducted on Oct. 1 came in response to reports of irregular attendance and enrollment practices within several Ohio community, or charter, schools.

He plans to go over what he found on Thursday, as well as making recommendations to both charter school sponsors and the Ohio Department of Education, which oversees their operations.

The event comes as Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) and state legislative leaders have said they'll pursue revisions to Ohio's charter school laws after a series of negative reports.
