Homebound Services Overview
For those who qualify, Homebound instruction is intended to provide short-term educational support for approximately two to three hours per week and should not replace or duplicate school-based instruction. Therefore, the school team prioritizes and limits the subject areas to be taught by the homebound teacher.
Homebound instruction can occur in an alternative location (i.e. community library, virtual setting) or the home if another responsible adult is present (i.e. parent, guardian, sibling over 18, etc.). Students who qualify for Homebound Instruction must request an application via the School Nurse Consultant at their school (Note: both pages and the medical section of the application must be completed) and received by the Student Services Department. In the interim, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will only be providing this service via virtual online support and/or meeting one on one in a district building.
In addition to illness, students with an IEP may require alternative services for issues related to behavior or safety. In these cases, the Special Education Area Coordinator will need to be contacted before decisions are finalized.
