§18-17-6. Registration of deaf and blind by assessors.
In addition to their other duties the county assessors of
the state are hereby required to register the names of all deaf
persons and blind persons under eighteen years of age in their
respective counties, with the degree and cause of deafness and
blindness in each case, as far as can be ascertained from the
heads of the families or from other persons whom the county
assessors may conveniently consult, their ages, the names of
their parents or guardians, their post-office addresses, and such
other facts as may be useful in making the institution efficient
in the education of the deaf and of the blind. They shall
complete the registration on or before June one of each year and
forward their report to the state superintendent of schools and
to the superintendent of the West Virginia schools for the deaf
and the blind on or before July one of each year. The
superintendent shall immediately communicate with the parents or
guardians of all the deaf persons and the blind persons mentioned
in the assessor's report, with a view of their admission as
pupils into said schools.
