Children of school age who have a verified medical or psychiatric condition that prohibits their attendance at school may qualify for Homebound Instruction or Partial Homebound Instruction. Pregnancy, in and of itself, is not a sufficient reason to provide Homebound Instruction.
The Director of Student Services upon receipt of the Application for Approval of Homebound Instruction form, which explains the condition, approves students recommended to receive Homebound Instruction. The application is not processed until the school district has a letter or form Establishing Medical Status of Child Referred for Homebound Instruction from the student’s physician/psychiatrist explaining the conditions and requesting the type and amount of Homebound Instruction.
The district will consider a physicians’ declaration, in writing, outlining the necessity for Homebound Instruction in anticipation of a prolonged absence of at least two (2) weeks. If the absence is anticipated to be less than this time (2 weeks), a program will not be approved.
