Homebound instruction is a service provided to pupils who are unable to attend school due to medical, emotional or disciplinary problems. Secondary pupils receive instruction for two hours per day and elementary pupils receive one hour per day. Pupils receive credit for their work while on homebound instruction.
Upon written request of the parent or guardian, and with the concurrence of the family physician, or upon referral from the Medical Director or the Director of Pupil Personnel Services, instruction will be provided in the home (or hospital in certain cases) to students whose expected absence will exceed two weeks.
