First Published Feb 04 2014 07:23 pm • Last Updated Feb 04 2014 10:09 pm

An independent audit into the West High School athletic department has been released to the Salt Lake City School District school board.

Board member Michael Clara said he recieved a tip from a parent at the school about the audit. Clara said Superintendent McKell Withers confirmed to him that Squire & Co. had conducted an audit of "West High School participation fees and booster club accounts."

The audit was distributed to the school board in a closed meeting Tuesday evening. Clara, who voted against closing the session, removed himself from the meeting while the audit was discussed and was unable to provide further details.

The audit was not made available to the public.

Following the meeting, Withers declined to provide specifics about the audit, but said audits like the one at West are commonplace.

"We have annual audits of all our high schools," he said. "Additional audits, like this one, have also been done at East and Highland."
