Auditor, CCS Leaders Meet As Audit Into Data-Rigging Wraps Up

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

The investigation into data scrubbing at Columbus City Schools is coming to a close as state officials met with school leaders Thursday.

Ohio Auditor Dave Yost met with CCS Superintendent Dr. Dan Good, regarding the investigation that has been ongoing since late 2012.

Then-superintendent Dr. Gene Harris requested the audit when the allegations of manipulated attendance data came to light.

Yost confirmed that school employees were changing attendance records to obtain better scores on the district's state report card.

"I appreciate the seriousness with which the district has taken this process. We have two board members here today. The superintendent has his management team here and we had almost a two-hour meeting going through this. So I'm confident that the district is poised to change and reform," Yost said.

"You know, I think it's best to say that we're all looking forward to the report being made public at the end of January," Good said.

The report will become public at the end of January.
