WVC 18 - 17 - 4
§18-17-4. Period of attendance; special admissions.
The pupils of said schools may continue therein until
completion of the prescribed course of study, or a lesser period
of time which the condition and progress of the pupils may
justify, as determined by the state board of education upon
recommendation of the school's superintendent. After all
applicants between the prescribed ages of five and twenty-three
years, inclusive, who are deaf or blind individuals working
toward completion of the requirements for high school graduation
have been enrolled, if there are additional accommodations, the
superintendent, on recommendation of the admissions committee,
may enroll other deaf pupils and blind pupils who first are of
preschool age, and second are post-secondary students up to
twenty-three years of age who have completed the requirements for
high school graduation, and upon such terms as the state board of
education may prescribe; but it shall be distinctly understood
that such persons shall withdraw from the institution in the
order of their admission to make room for new applicants between
the ages prescribed in section two of this article.
Vocational education and other educational services may be
provided for deaf and blind students beyond age twenty- three in
cooperation with the division of vocational rehabilitation.
