IHBF-R Policy - Homebound Instruction

Code: IHBF-R


A child may become a candidate for homebound instruction when he or she is hospitalized or homebound for more than one week of school due to illness or injury.

A parent or guardian of a student, unable to attend school because of illness or injury, may request that the student receive homebound instruction.

The building principal will select a homebound instructor from available staff or substitutes.

The homebound teacher will instruct the homebound student and consult with the homebound student's regular classroom teacher. The homebound teacher will be responsible for securing needed textbooks and other educational materials from the school; coordinate instruction with course requirements in cooperation with the regular teachers; and submit a periodic evaluation of the student's performance to the regular classroom teacher.
