Homebound/Hospital instruction is available for both special education students (SEH) and general education students (GEH) who meet eligibility. A committee (ARD/Section 504/General Education) must determine if a student is eligible for Homebound/Hospital Services and that they have a disability or illness that confines the student to the home for 4 weeks or 20 school days.
Homebound services may be provided through Section 504 committee for a general education student with a long term medical condition. For students who are in general education and have a temporary medical condition (surgery, etc.,) consideration for accommodations should be made by the General Education Homebound (GEH) committee. If the student is eligible under IDEA and is receiving special education and related services, the ARD Committee should convene to discuss the appropriate service for the student.
