New financial records show that an East Valley charter school chain, American Leadership Academy, paid over $45 million to companies owned by its founder, Glenn Way, or one of his relatives.

Last year, an investigation showed that Way profited about $37 million in real estate deals connected with American Leadership Academy expansion schools.
