Federal grand jury indicts Indiana virtual charter school leaders in alleged $44M enrollment scheme

Published by

A federal grand jury indicted three former administrators from two defunct Indiana online charter schools in an alleged scheme to collect millions of dollars in state funds. They are accused of a conspiracy to defraud the state by falsely reporting thousands of students who did not attend as enrolled at Indiana Virtual School and Indiana Virtual Pathways Academy. The indictment claims that as a result of false enrollment reports, the state education department paid more than $44 million to the schools that they were not entitled to receive.
