Religious Exemption Moving Within the State

Q. Our religious exemption has been recognized by our school board, but now we plan to move to another city in Virginia. Do we have to go through the religious exemption process again? A. No, your school board complied with the Virginia religious exemption statute and acted on behalf of the state of Virginia when they recognized your sincere religious beliefs. Your children are exempt from compulsory school attendance throughout the entire state of Virginia. There is nothing else you need to do. Of course, it’s always prudent to retain the original copies of all filed forms and correspondence with school officials for your records. Regards, Yvonne
