CALIFORNIA – The State Schools Superintendent, Tom Torlakson announced an audit of California Virtual Academies (CAVA) on Thursday. The California Department of Education, along with the State Controller’s Office will be conducting an audit of the nonprofit online public charter school.
This audit is taking place due to serious questions raised about a number of their practices.
“The goal of the audit is to make sure these schools are spending public education funds properly and serving their students well,” said Torlakson.
The audit will be done to review CAVA and other related charter schools to verify that they are organizationally separate from K-12, a for-profit company. The audit will also be done to verify that attendance, enrollment, and dropout rates are accurately reported to the California Department of Education.
Officials from the Department of Education and the State Controller’s office will also check to make sure that expenses are appropriately allocated and related-party relationships are appropriately identified, accounted for and disclosed.
The audit is expected to be complete by March 2017 according to the California Department of Education release.
