ATLANTA (AP) -- Penalties have been imposed on an Atlanta school that allowed football players living outside its service area to use false addresses on enrollment documents.

The Georgia High School Association has ordered Grady High School to forfeit wins from the 2013 season, spend the 2014 season on probation - which blocks the team from post-season play next year - and pay a $1,000 fine.

Atlanta Public Schools superintendent Erroll Davis earlier this month outlined the findings of an investigation that revealed at least 14 players on the team used false information in enrollment forms.

The investigation accused several team staff members and district employees of being involved in the fraud. District officials say they're finishing a separate investigation and could make personnel recommendations later this week.
