The Cincinnati Public School District says it will not lose millions of dollars after violating, what it calls a business rule, in a state scrubbing investigation.
At a news conference CPS called the accusations a misinterpretation of the constantly changing requirements from the Ohio Department of Education. To make their point, school officials displayed a binder containing 500 pages on how to report attendance data. Teachers Union President Julie Sellers pointed out an omission from the ODE on its own website.
The property room supervisor of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department - who is also a well-known nightclub singer in the Cincinnati area - has been arrested for removing property, along with his wife and his wife's son.
