WV FUE FAQ
A MESSAGE FROM THE WV FUE TEAM
It truly has been such a pleasure to advocate for and serve the families of WV over the last 16 months. Just recently we realized that the product our audience has grown to expect from us is our accurate, up-to-date information and the removal of confusion so that they know their next right step. This is not something that can be delivered without resources for full-time staffing.
There is a great need for the crafting of a nonpublic infrastructure to continue meeting the demand for K-12 educational options. We look forward to seeing all of you continue to fight for the cause in your own homes and communities to see that come to a reality.
If at some point in the future, circumstances change and the opportunity to resume our work is made available, we hope our team is in a position to accept that opportunity and resume our initiatives to transform K-12 education in the Mountain State.
WV FUE Team
We offer guidance to:
- Families navigating K-12 educational options
- Families navigating Open Enrollment Transfers
- Providers offering educational services (schools, microschools, learning pods, homeschool programs)
- Students wanting SSAC access
- Public school parents involved in their LSIC
- Hope Scholars
What We Do
As entrepreneurs and established providers seek to meet the growing demand that school choice has ushered into the Mountain State, a need for expert guidance has been revealed. With combined experience of over 30 years in this work, our team is uniquely qualified to provide a platform for showcasing services as well as consulting.
No longer are parents and grandparents in WV expected to go on a scavenger hunt to find the information they need to accomplish their goals for educating their children and grandchildren. We host in-person events, regular webinars, and interview guests and providers in order to bring the information to one central location.
Support Student Athletes
Our work expanding sports access to homeschoolers in 2020 opened up opportunities for student athletes in a measurable way. Over 200 children are competing with their local public school teams this 2022-2023 academic year thanks to our liaison work with WVSSAC and county boards of education.
Ten years from now, we believe families will be able to choose from a variety of options without the concern of feeding an “us” vs “them” narrative. We believe in empowering parents as the decision makers for their children and are able to remain entirely neutral and support them in exercising educational freedom.
Founder/ Executive Director
As Jamie heads into her 16th year of homeschooling in southern WV, one word captures the essence of her work – creating. When Jamie saw a need for athletic and academic programs for her family, she organized community programs and teams that met on a consistent basis. As the growth of hybrid homeschooling left leaders from across the nation in need of support in running compliant programs, she launched a consulting business that focused on preparing entrepreneurs in a niche market to communicate with professionals and government agencies to do so. When homeschoolers wanted sports access, she voluntarily lobbied for, passed, and then worked to implement a sports access law. With clients in over 30 states, and hundreds of homeschooled student athletes competing on public school teams, Jamie says being the DJ at the homeschool dances is her favorite role. She believes the key to unlocking every child’s unique potential is ensuring parents have quality options and can access them with ease. In early 2022, Jamie founded WV Families United for Education, the WV FUE, to become the epicenter for all WV families and providers ready to be a part of the transformation of K12 education in the Mountain State.
