Morgan County Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education encourages the enrollment of all school age children resident in this County in public schools; however, the Board recognizes that school age children may be exempted from compulsory school attendance under certain circumstances, including attendance at a parochial, private or other approved school or if the child is receiving home instruction.

The Board recognizes its responsibility for assuring that every resident school-age child is enrolled in a public, private, parochial or other approved school or is offered an equivalent education elsewhere and designates the Superintendent to act in its behalf.

All requests to educate a child with a home instruction program are to be submitted to the Superintendent.

The Superintendent shall develop and implement administrative guidelines which ensure that, prior to approval of a home instruction request, all statutory and regulatory requirements have been met.

The Board shall observe participation in activities according to those rules and regulations promulgated by the West Virginia State Department of Education and the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission.

Upon approval of the Morgan Board, the student may attend any class offered by the County Board of Education, subject to normal registration and attendance requirements.
