The Investigative Audit of the Largest Public School System in Oklahoma

Cindy Byrd and her Forensic Audit Division conducted an investigation of Epic Charter Schools.

She has been criticized by the Schools' two founders and their political supporters ever since.

Oklahoma taxpayers deserve to know the truth about their false claims and their mismanagement.

Epic Public Schools received more taxpayer funds than any other public schools...
... but
did not have school buildings...
        ... and
hid a quarter of their expenditures...
                  ... and
were run by a for-profit company.

Epic Public Schools’ founders declared $46 million of taxpayer money as their personal profit
... in just the last five years of the audit period.


Epic Public Schools’ founders improperly used

hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars

to benefit a California public school.

Epic Public Schools’ founders improperly exceeded administrative costs by millions of dollars.

Epic Public Schools’ founders
refused to allow the public 
to know how they spent 
$79 million of taxpayer money 

... in just the last five years of the audit period.

Epic Public Schools’ founders spent millions of dollars on advertising.

Epic Public Schools have been ordered to return $20 million of misspent taxpayer funds.

Epic Public Schools have severed ties with their founders and have already saved substantial amounts of money in operations.
