Watch Frontier: Reporter Ben Felder discusses his story on Epic Charter School’s finances

When parents login to the online “Parent Portal” from Epic’s main website, they are taken to a site operated by Five Points Technology Group, Inc., a Florida-based company managed by Elizabeth VanAcker, the wife of Epic co-founder Ben Harris, who is also the co-owner of the private company that oversees Epic charter schools and receives a portion of its state funding. 

It’s unknown how much Epic pays for Five Points Technology’s services because the transaction does not appear in a line item register for Epic One on One, the virtual school operated by Harris’ company. 

Frontier reporter Ben Felder discussed this story on Oklahoma News Report on OETA-The Oklahoma Network.
