The State Virtual Charter School Board will consider a settlement proposal from Epic that could save the charter school district from contract termination.

More than 35,000 students are enrolled in Epic One-on-One and could be impacted by the decisions made Monday.

In the proposed agreement, Epic would make purchasing records of their controversial Learning Fund public.

The fund is maintained by Epic Youth Services, a private company that manages Epic Charter Schools.

The board will also discuss a lawsuit filed by board member Mathew Hamrick.

He was removed for all Epic-related matters after the audit found he had a close relationship with one of the charter school's founders.

He claims his recusal as improper and that no action on Epic should be taken without him.

The meeting will start at 3 p.m. Monday.
