(AP) — Two Indiana online charter schools accused of inflating their enrollments by thousands of students are losing their authorization to continue operating.State officials say Indiana Virtual School and Indiana Virtual Pathways Academy were overpaid more than $47 million as an audit found more than half of their some 7,000 students weren’t active for much of 2017.Both schools are authorized under state law by the Daleville School Board, which voted Monday to revoke their charters. An attorney for the online schools has denied any wrongdoing but none of its leaders attended the meeting.Daleville Superintendent Paul Garrison says the online schools “are functionally inoperative” as their teachers are no longer being paid. Garrison says he expects little assistance from the online schools’ leaders in helping students transfer to other schools.
