Charlotte Student Denied Ticket To Prom, Told He Is Not A Charlotte Student
Kaine Buletza is a Charlotte student that fell behind in some classes this year, so on the advice of school administrators, he entered a program at LCC, according to the Lansing State Journal. The program, called High School Diploma Initiative, allows students to attend full-time but remain connected to their home high school for the purposes of graduation, prom, etc...
Buletza was allegedly told by Charlotte's High School Principal back in January that there shouldn't be an issue with him attending the school's prom, but that's not the case, according to Charlotte's Superintendent, despite the fact that Charlotte Public Schools still receives funding for Buletza. Even the program director of the program at LCC, Kelli Hatfield, says Buletza is a Charlotte High School student.
So here, Kaine and his girlfriend, are all dressed up with no place to go. Prom is Saturday and the district's position as of right now is that Buletza isn't welcome unless he's the guest of a Charlotte student.
Dear Charlotte Public Schools: I'm going to close my eyes for 5 seconds and pretend that none of this happened. When I open my eyes, heads better have been removed from posteriors and Kaine better magically have two tickets in his hand.
