A change of heart- The prom is on for cyber students

News

HAZLETON, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) The Hazleton Area School District has had a change of heart regarding two cyber school students who were not allowed to attend this Friday’s prom.

The district superintendent told Eyewitness News on Thursday night that the district re-evaluated their policy.

Originally Austin Sterenchock and his fiancée Jackie Meisier were told they wouldn’t be able to go to the prom because school policy does not allow students from cyber or charter schools to attend “social events”.

They questioned that policy because cyber students can take part in extra curricular activities like sports.

The students reached out to Eyewitness News Thursday night to thank us for bringing awareness to their situation.
