APS investigation reveals evidence of address fraud

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools says there is "conclusive evidence of address fraud" after an investigation into the Grady High School football program.

Superintendent Erroll B. Davis, Jr. in a release to FOX 5 News on Friday stated that the district has "confirmed that parents falsified enrollment affidavits for students who live outside of the Grady attendance zone, and in some instances, outside of the city of Atlanta."

Davis states that the students will be required to leave the school and their parents may have to reimburse the district to a price tag of up to $10,000 per student per school year. He also states that the parents may face other legal consequences.

The district is continuing its investigation through winter break. Davis states the initial probe "revealed additional issues that warrant further investigation." He further states there are "issues of institutional control" which must be resolved before they close the investigation.
