Additional documents sought by the state auditor in his probe of the Ohio education department's troubled charter school oversight office will not be released, a divided state school board voted last week.

Auditor Dave Yost has been probing what many contend have been questionable actions by the office and its former director, David Hansen, who resigned in July. Hansen's wife was the chief of staff to Republican Gov. John Kasich before leaving the role to manage the governor's 2016 presidential campaign.

Board members cited documents that fell within attorney-client privilege in their refusal to release the information.
