The primary purpose of homebound instruction is to provide an education for those students who are unable to attend school due to a physical or mental illness. This program is available to students at all grade levels. Homebound instruction is not a substitute for regular school attendance, it does provide an opportunity for students to maintain some degree of contact with their teachers and enables them to continue to earn credits towards graduation.
Qualifying for Homebound Instruction
To begin the process, parents/guardians who request homebound instruction must complete an application for homebound instruction, which can be obtained from your school building's counselor. Section II of the form must be completed by the attending physician with the recommendation for the length of time the student will require homebound. It is important to note that the school district makes the final determination of the total length of homebound services to be provided.
For more information, contact the building where your student attends.
