In the wake of the E-COT shutting downs its operations, an investigation has found that Ohio's former largest charter school will be getting some of the money they are owed.

The online school shut down after allegations that the owner swindled the state out of millions of state tax money.

Rich Kruse is one of the men running the auction of the building and its assets. He said they filed a motion to get the staff their paid time-off accruals in full. The motion has been approved by Judge Michael J. Holbrook and will be made public soon.

Hundreds of employees, who say they are victims of the circumstance, will split up around $400,000 based on what they earned while at the school.
