The West Virginia Department of Education released a memo citing the impact of the coronavirus to recommend that county boards give homeschoolers a sort of grace period until December 31, 2020 if they submit a standardized test as their annual assessment.
This grace period does not apply to those submitting other forms of assessment. Although the WVDE does not have authority to change the law, it is an influential authority and most counties defer to its guidance.
