MIRAMAR (CBSMiami/AP) — An investigation by the Broward County School District has found that Miramar High School officials allowed cheating, questionable grade changes and favoritism toward football players in 2014.

The Sun Sentinel writes that the 3,000-page report, which recommends a demotion for the school’s former principal and suspension for an assistant principal, was based on 80 witness statements and details problems.

The grades of nearly a quarter of the students in one graduating class were changed. The grades of at least three football players were changed to make them eligible to play. Lax computer security made it tough to know who made many of the changes.

The report also said a reported battery by a football player was reduced to a minor discipline offense.
