What is Homebound & Hospitalized Service?
Homebound and hospitalized service is a self-study program designed to help pupils, who are unable to attend school for more than 5 days consecutively due to a medical condition, to keep up with their studies and to progress as far as possible given their documented medical condition. The homebound and hospitalized teacher carries the curriculum from school to the home, treatment facility, or local library to enable pupils to continue with their studies. It is important to note that these are services designed to help the classroom teacher(s) communicate with the pupil while away from school.
How does a student qualify for Homebound/Hospitalized Service?
For a pupil to qualify for homebound or hospitalized service, the pupil must be enrolled in a public school. The district is responsible for the content of the instruction, providing textbooks and other materials related to the instruction, providing assignments, and grading.
What do I do if my child needs Homebound/Hospitalized Service?
If homebound/hospitalized services or tutoring services are required, please contact the student's school to begin the referral process. The school district will then process a referral form and forward it along with a physician's note to LESA for processing.
