Dear Mr. Larsen:

I am in receipt of your request for a Superintendent?s Interpretation regarding student enrollment in West Virginia public schools.

Specifically, you ask:

?Can an administrator deny or delay a student the opportunity to enroll in a public school if that student is of proper age, is not under suspension or expulsion from his/her previous school, has all the required immunizations, and has someone who is going to act as guardian??

I believe that the questions you pose are addressed in the enclosed memorandum sent to county superintendents on March 1, 2004.

Hoping that I have been of service, I am,

Sincerely,

/s/

David Stewart
State Superintendent of Schools
