SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- The Office of the State Auditor said the State Chamber School Board (SCSB) granted funds to a charter school without following protocol.
The audit said SCSB awarded and dispersed a state start-up grant to Athlos Academy of Utah before the school signed an agreement.
“The SCSB awarded Athlos a $124,100 charter school start-up grant in July 2015,” the audit said but an agreement wasn’t signed until July 2016.
Under proper protocol the charter agreement must be signed before the grant is disbursed.
State auditors say they are concerned this has happened with more than one school.
