In January, the state attorney general’s office accused two operators of a dozen Oregon charter schools of mishandling $17 million in state aid and filed a claim against them.

But the Bend Bulletin reported Wednesday the state has now determined most of the money was in fact spent properly on education and has settled with the men, Tim King and Norm Donohoe.

The two must pay the state $475,000 each and refrain from a number of educational activities for four years. They also agreed never to consult with state-funded charter schools for compensation.

The charter schools were in Estacada, Sisters, Baker City, Sheridan, Burns and Marcola, and students statewide were in online programs.
