The Indiana Department of Education recently granted a request to register the LaCav Community School Corporation to it’s superintendent, Leo Cavinder.
There’s just one problem…there are no students at LaCav. Actually there’s a second problem…Leo Cavinder is a seventh grader in LaPorte.
WSBT reports that the Department DID grant LaCav a non-public school number, but it was quickly revoked when they realized there was no actual school. The state is quick to point out that no funding ever changed hands, and the number does nothing on its own…but Cavinder was able to get his false school on the official closings list last week.
The Department of Education says this is the first instance of this that they’ve ever experienced. The false school is something Cavinder has been working on since he was in the first grade, and he has even met with officials in Indianapolis as part of his project.
