Homebound instruction is a short-term program to assist students to keep current in their regularly scheduled school classes.

When a student has been out of school for two weeks or it is obvious according to a physician’s recommendation that he/she will be out for two weeks, the student is eligible for homebound instruction. The homebound instructor will then make contact with the home and consult with the parent. If the parent feels that the child is well enough to have instruction, an appointment will be made.

The homebound instructor will visit the child's teacher or teachers and secure materials and instructions. The instructor will also report back to the classroom teacher on the child's progress.

Homebound services normally consist of teacher contact with the student for two hours per week: two one-hour periods. Adjustments may be made for special cases.
