THE TRUTH ABOUT TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
WHO KEEPS US ACCOUNTABLE?
EPIC Charter Schools is a public charter school system that is held to the same standards in financial and academic reporting and accountability as all other public schools in Oklahoma.
To coordinate our reporting processes. our school system works with:
STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
OKLAHOMA VIRTUAL CHARTER SCHOOL BOARD
ROSE STATE COLLEGE
Unlike traditional school systems, EPIC’s unique position places our charter school system under the direct supervision of these three separate entities — each with the authority to review and evaluate our school’s charter and contractual obligations. This makes EPIC arguably one of the most scrutinized public school systems in the state.

AUDIT FINDINGS AND EPIC'S RESPONSE
In addition to the standard reporting EPIC undergoes on an annual basis, our school systems have undergone a special investigation with the Oklahoma State Auditor and Inspector’s Office. This investigation and its highly contested findings have made several assumptions about our organization that simply are not true.
“As the internal auditor of Epic’s Charter School systems, I report directly to the Board. I look forward to validating our internal processes, which are designed appropriately and effectively. Any improvements to ensure transparency and accountability will also be duly considered.”
