The school is to finish with an investigation and be prepared to talk about the counterfeit sideline passes that were distributed at the state finals at the University of Illinois this past weekend.

In a statement, the IHSA says it takes the abuses very seriously, since they could be a safety issue and provide a competitive advantage.

There is no word on what the sanctions might be.
