Department of Student Services
The Department of Student Services is an integral part of West Point Public Schools. It is responsible for all programs that serve as a support for students and families. We address issues related to homelessness, discipline, truancy, school health, enrollment, early intervention teams, therapeutic day treatment services, and inter-agency support programs.
To register a student in one of West Point Public School’s schools, please visit the school in person and provide the following documents:

Two (2) proofs of residency (a utility bill, copy of a lease, purchase agreement, etc.)

Child's Birth Certificate

Immunization records

Virginia Physical Examination form

Previous school records
State Law (§22.1-248) mandated consequences are applied to those absences considered truancies.

If a student is truant five days during the school year, then the parent and child must participate with school officials to develop a plan to resolve the child’s nonattendance.
If a sixth truancy occurs during the school year, a conference will be scheduled to resolve issues related to the nonattendance.
Finally, if a seventh truancy occurs during the school year, the law specifies that the school may file a complaint with the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court alleging the child is in need of supervision. School personnel are also permitted to institute proceedings in this court against the parent(s) if they refuse to participate in the development of the plan to resolve the child’s truancy (at the fifth truancy) or if the parent refuses to participate in the conference (at the sixth truancy).
