The Board of Education authorizes the use of homebound instruction when appropriate. Application
for homebound instruction must be made through the school principal and approved by the
superintendent or designee. Homebound instruction will be provided to:
1. Any student with a medical condition who district personnel have determined would benefit
from homebound instruction. Such determination will be made in consultation with the
student's medical provider. The special education director or compliance officer will be
notified if appropriate.
2. Any student whose educational needs, as determined by district staff, are most appropriately
and effectively met by homebound instruction.
3. Any student with disabilities when the individualized education program (IEP) team or 504
team determines that homebound placement is appropriate.
The amount of instruction or supportive service provided through the homebound program shall be
determined in relation to each student’s educational needs and health for a minimum of five (5)
hours per week. It will be necessary for the parents/guardians of the student to arrange a suitable
place in the home or other designated place for homebound instruction.
At the time the student is placed on homebound services, the school principal will work with the
parents/guardians and district personnel to create an appropriate plan for transition back to onsite
