Oklahoma Governor Calls For Audit

Steven Rains - July 19, 2019 8:21 pm

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt and State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister are calling for an investigative audit of Epic Charter Schools.

That’s after state investigators revealed an embezzlement probe involving the school’s co-founders.

The two Republicans issued the joint statement Friday, and Stitt formally requested an audit by State Auditor and Inspector Cindy Byrd. Stitt asked that the audit include the school and ‘all related entities,’ along with a three-year look back on previous audits.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation alleged in a court affidavit this week that Epic co-founders David Chaney and Ben Harris embezzled millions in state funds by inflating student enrollment numbers.
