Ohio auditor sees no signs of scrubbing in second school attendance review
Yost's investigation looks at whether school district's doctored attendance figures to boost report-card scores
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE BUREAU CHIEF KAREN KASLER

In The Region:

The state auditor says he’s finished a second round of an investigation into whether more Ohio schools altered attendance data, possibly to improve state report cards. Ohio Public Radio’s Karen Kasler reports.

Auditor David Yost says he picked 81 buildings in 47 of the 184 districts that have money questions on next month’s ballot, to find out if more Ohio schools are manipulating attendance data by removing students from enrollment lists. And he says he’s surprised and pleased with the results.

“Of the school buildings in the districts that we looked at in this second phase, we found no districts – no school buildings, I should say – with any evidence of scrubbing.”

Attendance data is among the stats used to evaluate a district’s performance for state report cards. The first preliminary audit of attendance data found what Yost called attendance report rigging in the public schools in Campbell near Youngstown, Cleveland, Columbus, Marion and Toledo.
