Ohio’s Auditor of State made a number of recommendations to curb attendance altering in Ohio school districts on Tuesday.
Auditor Dave Yost also told the State Board of Education that final district report cards would be released by the end of the month.
The report cards for the 2011-12 school year should have been published last summer but were delayed because of the state investigation into districts’ enrollment policies.
Yost announced on Monday that four additional schools were found to have altered data – bringing the state total to nine.
The four additional schools were Cincinnati City, Canton City, Northridge in Montgomery County and Winton Woods in Hamilton County.
The original five schools include Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, Marion and Campbell.
Yost also recommended on Tuesday that the state get rid of Count Week, which is when school districts report their official attendance data to the state.
The state superintendent told Yost that he would consider the recommendation and thinks the change could be in place by the end of the school year.
