On top of the more than $60 million they may seek to recover from the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, Ohio education department officials also could demand about $23 million more from other online schools for inflated attendance.

On the same day late last month that a court rejected the ECOT's request to block the state from using log-in durations as a way to verify student counts, state officials informed eight other online charter schools that they, too, were unable to properly justify their reported enrollments.

In all, the eight schools reported 4,998 students, but the state verified 1,654 students.
