PROVO, Utah (AP) -- The president of a state technical school who was placed on administrative leave during an audit returned to work today.

Clay Christensen went back to Mountainland Applied Technology College after an investigation into an audit that criticized his leadership and that of the former president of the Utah College of Applied Technology, Robert Brems.

Boards for both schools found Christensen was trying to fix a problem -- not cover one up.

At issue was the funding of a parade float for the Utah County Republican Party.

According to the audit, Christensen falsified documents in the accounting of public funds to pay for the parade float.

The money was eventually paid for by a private donor after Christensen spoke with Brems about the issue. Brems resigned in September.
