    Hello Mineral County,
    Thank you for taking the time to share the website. However, after reading page 142, I have found that you can homeschool in WV and it is NOT against the law. Of course, there are conditions that will have to be met first, but foster children can be homeschooled.


    Every child in foster care must be afforded educational opportunitiescommensurate with the child’s abilities. All children in placement are expected toattend school on a regular basis. All children in foster care are expected to attendhigh school through graduation rather than quitting school and/or completing theirGeneral Equivalency Degree (GED). Educational issues will be discussed duringthe MDT meetings and will be included in the child’s case plan.5.12.1 Alternative School PlacementsAll foster children are expected to use the public education system to meettheir educational needs. The Department will not approve placing a childin a non-accredited school or educational program. Alternative school placements such as church affiliated schools, private schools, or homeschooling, will only be considered if they are recommended by anIndividualized Education Plan, the Multidisciplinary Treatment Team hasagreed to the plan and there is appropriate documentation that a privateschool or home schooling is in the child’s best interest. The child’s workermust seek approval from the Foster Care Program Specialist before anarrangement to transfer the child to a church affiliated school or privateschool can be made or home schooling can be approved.
