COLUMBUS, Ohio -- State Auditor Dave Yost says he's completed the second phase of work in an investigation into potentially irregular attendance and enrollment practices at Ohio school districts.

Yost planned to share another round of results from the statewide audit on Tuesday.

He has said he wanted to release information on schools with levies on the fall ballot before the Nov. 6 election.

The Republican auditor is trying to determine whether schools removed poor-performing students from their books as a way to improve performance ratings that affect government payments and employee bonuses.

So far, he's found five districts that used questionable practices.

The probe was launched after unusual practices were discovered in Columbus, Toledo and suburban Cincinnati districts.

Yost has said this will be his final update until after the election.
