Yes, parents can be fined fifty dollars per day their children are absent. Truancy is a major problem in all counties in WV. Children can have five unexcused absences for the school term. Parents can wright five notes per school term. DR excuses, not office personnel or Nurse Practioners write the excuses. Death in the family (Obituary) can be used. Weather related also. What parents need to understand, the court can remove their child and place them in the court system to insure they are attending school. Do you want your child to be placed in a foster home, shelter, juvenile jail,such as the Donald R, Kuhn Cente. In other words, parents the choice us yours.

It started a few years ago and to be honest i think its a good thing. Maybe it will make parents send their kids to school. That way the children have a shot to make something of their self and have a good life. America's education level is falling so far behind other country's its horrible. I don't see why you'd even get mad about something like that. Your friend needs a boot in her butt for not sending her child to school.

Well, let's talk about proper grammar. Your statement would be types as the following : " WRONG! Sorry, just can't help it. " It's okay. I just couldn't help it.

I just want to add some more information parents and children may not be aware of. For instance, a child who is eighteen and is currently enrolled in school can and will be placed not in a juvenile facility but in the regional jail. Even younger than eighteen. I have seen it happen. Parents also can be placed in jail. So please, make your child go. If I tried to stay home, my mom, God bless her soul, told you only once to get up. Trust me, it only took once. There was always a switch, a belt nearby. If those two were nor in reach, a bucket of cold water and she had the boniest fingers. They were lethal weapons.

well I don't know you may support the school fines but its not fair to the parents they shuld be given a heads up. the schools will file on you with the court system and it is usually at the end of each month so watch out for DHHR workers and court orders they may be comming soon

it is true that they will take your children, my sister in law lost her son over truancy, he was sent to foster care for almost a year,, and it was horrible.. also some one in the school system said that the law of sending your kids to school 48 weeks out of a year has passed and they are trying to get it into effect immediately.. so wow,,, who knows what will happen next,,, first they take your kid,, then they fine you,,, and now,, they want to send them longer.. geez..
