Homeschool Notice of Intent Reminder

Homeschooling in West Virginia.

Thanks for supporting homeschool freedom.

HSLDA staff attorney Mike Donnelly helps protect homeschool freedom in your community.

Dear West Virginia HSLDA Members:

It’s the beginning of the school year, and if you haven’t done so yet, we wanted to remind families educating their children under West Virginia homeschool law (Section 18-8-1(c) of the West Virginia Code) that they should submit a notice of intent for students between the ages of 6 and 17.

While there is no deadline or date by which you must submit your notice to local public school officials, we generally suggest that the notification be submitted by the start of school in your district. Since school has started in most West Virginia school districts at this point, that means you should consider sending in your notification as soon as possible.

This notice would include the students’ names, ages, grade levels, and address. The instructor also needs to provide evidence of a high school diploma or equivalent.

HSLDA has noticed an increase in judicial and administrative involvement in truancy. Therefore we encourage our members to contact us if they have any concerns about their relationship with their local school district.

HSLDA provides a notice of intent form for members, which you can access online.

For a more detailed analysis of West Virginia homeschooling options, visit our website.

If you have any questions concerning the requirements of West Virginia homeschool law, please contact our office at (540) 338-5600.

Thank you for your membership and support!
