Homebound instructional services are designed to support regular and special education students, who as a result of healthcare treatment, physical illness, accident, or the treatment thereof, are temporarily unable to attend school. Homebound services are provided in the hospital or home environment and shall be provided by a certified teacher. Homebound instruction should be used as a last resort after all other options and/or alternative schedules (i.e. half days, work packets, etc.) have been exhausted. Students may qualify for Homebound services when enrolled in a public school with a completed application from the attending physician and district verification.
