Data-Cruncher at Center of School Attendance Scandal Resigns

Updated: Wednesday, February 6 2013, 09:20 AM EST
COLUMBUS -- A former principal and data processing chief with Columbus Public schools announces his resignation-- effective March 15th.

Steve Tankovich has been implicated as being the center of an attendance-rigging scandal, one which gave the school system more state funding by checking-off some students from overall attendance rates.

Since the findings became public, Tankovich was considered the "mastermind" behind number-forging.

In his letter of resignation, signed Tuesday, Tankovich wrote:

“I have served the Columbus City School District loyally for 44 years. It has become evident now that I need to center my attention on my family and health

Tankovich made no mention of possible implications surrounding the attendance scandal. He has not immediately returned our calls for a comment.
