HOMEBOUND INSTRUCTION

 

The Board of Education shall make provisions for homebound instruction to students who are ill for an extended period of time, and who, in the judgment of the superintendent of schools or his or her designee, could profit by such instruction. Application for homebound teaching must be made through the office of the superintendent of schools and approved by the child's physician before homebound teaching can start. Upon approval of the application, homebound instruction will be provided to:

 

< Any child with a health or physical condition which in the opinion of a licensed medical examiner will cause him or her to be absent from school for an extended period of time, plus determination by school personnel that the child can educationally benefit from such a program;

 

OR

 

< Any child whose educational needs, as determined and reviewed in a multidisciplinary staff conference, are most appropriately and effectively met by such a program.

 

The amount of instruction or supportive service provided through the home and homebound program shall be determined in relation to each child's educational needs, and his or her physical and mental health. It will be necessary for the parents/guardians of the student to arrange a suitable place in the home for homebound instruction.
