Hospital Homebound Instructional Services

About Hospital Homebound

Hospital Homebound Instructional Services are a temporary intervention and are not intended to replace the classroom experience.  Services provided are limited when compared to a comprehensive campus. Our primary goals are to minimize instructional gaps by providing access to curriculum while the student is medically confined and to promote re-entry into a traditional school setting. 

Who do we serve?

We service students who have a medically diagnosed condition which is acute or catastrophic in nature, or a chronic illness, or a repeated intermittent illness due to a persisting medical problem that
confines the student to the home or hospital, and restricts activities for an extended period of time.

Eligibility & Instructional Services

Eligibility and all services are determined by the Individualized Education (IEP) team, which typically consists of a Hospital Homebound case manager, the student's zoned school Exceptional Student Education (ESE) staff and the parent/guardian. 

For students K-5 we offer online coursework through K12. Edgenuity is the online platform utilized to provide basic core subjects to students in 6-12th grade. If determined necessary by the IEP team, we also have part-time afterschool in-home ESE Teachers/Therapists available. 

Please contact the ESE Contact at your child's school, if you suspect that Hospital Homebound Instructional Services are needed. If you have more questions regarding Hospital Homebound please review the Parent Informational Handout and feel free to reach out to the Assistant Principal.
