Spotsylvania County

A parent and Virginia-certified teacher correctly submitted her paperwork to the superintendent to become a Virginia-certified tutor under the compulsory attendance law, §22.1-254. However, being unfamiliar with the law, an office representative insisted that the parent file an NOI.

After contacting HEAV for assistance, we provided the parent with information to assist the office in processing her submission properly. Although the parent was well-informed on the law, communicated it, and properly implemented the tools HEAV provided, the effort was to no avail; an NOI was again requested. HEAV then contacted the Spotsylvania school district to explain the differences in the laws. Following this conversation, the district processed certified tutor paperwork under the correct statute.

If you are a Virginia-certified teacher and have questions about your filing options, please contact our office at 804-278-9200 or via our contact form.
