The Islamic School of Canberra has confirmed classes will run as normal despite a police investigation being conducted into documents relating to the school.
ACT police have confirmed they have launched a formal investigation following reports of forgery in an application for the school to be extended into a high school.
It has been reported that a letter of support submitted as part of the application contained a forged signature for a prominent Australian Taxation Office staffer, who was also president of the Islamic Society of the ACT.

The school's principal Imam Ali said he could not comment on the investigation as it was being handled by the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, which owns the school.
But he confirmed classes were running as normal.
AFIC president Ikebal Patel, who is also chairman of the school's board, has not yet returned phone calls made by The Canberra Times.
The Islamic School of Canberra, the only one of its kind in the ACT, opened in 2005 and now has more than 130 students.
It caters for students in kinder to year 8, having expanded into high school students for the first time last year.
