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,
