Homebound Instruction

Students who have a medical prescription for homebound instruction, those who are “too ill” to attend school, are provided 5 hours of tutoring/instruction per week.  Homebound instruction is paid for out of the general budget.  Parents are required to bring a medical physician’s request to the building the student attends. The physician’s letter must include:

1.       Medical diagnosis specifying the nature of the condition

2.       Reason(s) why this condition prohibits regular school attendance

3.       Estimated length of confinement. Homebound instruction is not to exceed 3 months    

4.       Other pertinent information the physician believes school personnel should know about their treatment of the student

Our office then processes the request for the district and the state.
