Homebound instruction is designed to provide continuity of educational services between the classroom and home for students who, for a documented medical reason, are confined to the home and are unable to attend school for a period of twenty consecutive days or more. It is not intended to replace a regular school program. Approved students typically receive services for four to six weeks after documentation is received from a physician or licensed clinical psychologist. Hours of instruction may vary depending on a student’s schedule and the availability of certified teachers. Information may be obtained and referrals made by parents or guardians through the guidance office at the student’s home school.
