West Virginia--Reminder: End-of-Year Assessment Due by June 30

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

This is a friendly reminder that your child's annual evaluation is due
to your district superintendent by June 30.

According to West Virginia law, parents providing home education under
the notification option must submit an academic assessment of their
child for the previous school year. Parents have the following four
assessment options:

1. A written narrative prepared by a certified teacher who has
reviewed the child's portfolio indicating that "the child's academic
progress for the year is in accordance with the child's abilities."

2. A nationally normed, standardized achievement test that is
published within the last 10 years; administered by a person who meets
the qualifications established by the publisher or provider of the
test, but not the parent; and covers the following subjects: reading,
language, mathematics, science and social studies.

3. A state testing program

4. Any alternative academic assessment of proficiency agreed upon by
the superintendent.

If you have not already done so, we encourage you to submit your
evaluation by the deadline. For more detailed information on the
end-of-year assessment requirements, visit our website at:

Thank you for your support of homeschooling in West Virginia!

Very truly yours,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's Federal Relations Department is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
