A judge has denied local school districts from intervening in the civil lawsuit against what was the largest online charter school in Ohio, the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT). 

The Franklin County judge rejected the districts’ request to get involved in the case against ECOT, noting that the goals of the schools and the state are closely aligned. 

Dayton, Toledo, Springfield, and the other districts claimed that the attorney general’s office had close ties to ECOT’s founder Bill Lager.

Many early voting centers throughout the state were busy this weekend as voters cast absentee ballots, in person, ahead of tomorrow’s Election Day. We caught up with some voters at the Franklin County Early Vote Center Saturday.

There was a long line around the center for much of the day though most voters said they were able to vote within an hour. Outside, it was a party like atmosphere as a band entertained those standing in line, like Derek Reed.
