It’s the news an Ohio Valley family has been waiting to hear for months, but it finally came the week of Christmas.
“I think the state is starting to take notice. We have a lot of people fighting,” added Karen Stevens.
The Stevens family, along with members of the community and student body, have fought tirelessly to get Roy Stevens re-enrolled at Hundred High School.
17 year-old, Roy, was diagnosed at an early age with Down Syndrome.
The fight between the Stevens and the Wetzel County Board of Education began over the summer months, when the board required Roy to attend Magnolia High School, which is an hour away from their home in Hundred.
On Monday the Stevens found out Roy would be allowed to once again walk the halls of Hundred High.
A special meeting has been scheduled between the Stevens family and facilitators from the W.Va State Individual Education Program on Tuesday.
Members of the I.E.P. will then determine what situation is best for Roy for the remainder of the school year.
