When a student is expected to be absent from school for at least five consecutive days because of a documented medical or psychological condition, Home/Hospital instruction should be considered.
To be eligible, the student’s application must include a medical statement with a diagnosis completed and signed by a licensed medical professional. The application also should include verification that the illness confines the student to a hospital, nursing facility, or home—as well as a statement that the student is physically unable to attend school even on a part-time basis.
Intermittent home instruction is offered to students who have a chronic illness that causes inconsistent school attendance. As with full-time Home/Hospital services, intermittent home instruction will be activated when a student is anticipated to miss at least five consecutive days. The student must have already completed an application for home instruction, been approved for intermittent services, and been assigned a teacher.
