SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Parents of students at a Salt Lake City elementary school criticized for throwing away school lunches lashed out at school board members who delayed releasing an investigation Tuesday.

The school board said they postponed the release of an independent audit for two weeks so they could so they could finalize the results. Uintah Elementary drew national attention after about 30 students with overdue lunch fees saw their $2 pizza lunches taken and thrown away in January.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/1CqpycF) reports parents accused school district officials of bullying people who spoke out about the incident. The parents said a cafeteria worker who resigned in August after being reprimanded was a scapegoat in the controversy.

District spokesman Jason Olsen said the district did not ask her to resign.
