Department Overview

  • General Education Homebound

    The purpose of homebound instruction is to provide students with academic instruction at home or hospital bedside, during a temporary period of absence, in order that they can re-engage successfully at their home campus when they return to their home campus. Homebound instruction cannot replicate, and is not intended to replicate, what a student receives in their classroom setting. The goal of the homebound program is to facilitate the student’s return to the classroom as soon as possible.

    Special Education Homebound

    This instructional arrangement/setting is for providing special education and related services to students who are served at home or hospital bedside.

    (A) Students served on a homebound or hospital bedside basis are expected to be confined for a minimum of four consecutive weeks as documented by a physician licensed to practice in the United States. Homebound or hospital bedside instruction mayalso be provided to chronically ill students who are expected to be confined for any period of time totaling at least four weeks throughout the school year as documented by a physician licensed to practice in the United States. The student's ARD committee shall determine the amount of services to be provided to the student in this instructional arrangement/setting in accordance with federal and state laws, rules, and regulations.

    (B) Home instruction may also be used for services to infants and toddlers (birth through age 2) and young children (ages 3-5) when determined appropriate by the child's individualized family services plan (IFSP) committee or ARD committee.
