Fall 2006

 

Roane and Clay counties ó Two parents sent their letters of intent to homeschool and requested access to field trips, assemblies, and other class activities for their children. The Roane County attendance director replied that there were insurance issues with non-enrolled children participating in class activities, but directed the parent to the school principal. Clay County Board of Education did not respond to the parentís request, nor did the local school (one parent had copied the local school principal on her request).

WVHEA sent a copy of a letter from the WV Bureau of Risk & Insurance Management (provided by Randy Minor ) to each parent. The letter says that a schoolís risk is not affected if a child who is not enrolled participates in extracurricular activities.
