TULSA, Okla. — The Virtual Charter School Board voted to begin the process to terminate contract with Epic One-on-One Charter School.
Epic Charter School's Superintendent issued a statement saying the virtual charter school will "prevail" once they have the opportunity to present their side.
Fairness did not prevail today, but it’s important to understand what did happen. The SVCSB voted to initiate the process to terminate, but it is a process that provides EPIC due process with that Board, as well as other legal options. So far, only one side of the story has been allowed to be told. We are confident that once we have the audit work papers and have as much opportunity to present our side of the audit as the State Auditor has been provided, we will prevail for our more than 2,100 employees and the families of our more than 60,000 students.
This comes after the State Board of Education unanimously voted to require the online charter school to return $11,235,919 to the state treasury. This is based on a state audit that found the school's administrations was inconsistent with state laws and its own charter agreement.
