The schools may furnish homebound instruction to public school students who are unable to attend classes for at least two consecutive weeks due to a significant physical injury, medical situation, or a severe emotional problem. The instruction is designed to provide maintenance in basic elementary and secondary subjects (that do not require laboratories and special equipment) such that upon a student’s return to school, he/she will not be at a substantial academic disadvantage.
To qualify for the program, the student needs a written statement from a medical doctor requesting the homebound instruction, stating the reason(s) why, and estimating the time the student will be out of school. This statement should be sent to the Superintendent who will determine whether the request can be fulfilled.
Homebound instructional service review and implementation will abide by all state laws and regulations.
