The State Auditor’s pursuit of records to account for at least $69 million spent by Epic Charter School’s management company is headed to trial Dec. 16. 

The date was set today by Oklahoma County District Judge Natalie Mai, who also ruled that the Statewide Virtual Charter School Board, which oversees Epic’s virtual school, can weigh in on the case with an amicus brief. A similar request by Rose State College, which oversees Epic’s blended school, was denied.
