Hospital Homebound (H
H) Teachers provide direct instruction to students (1-12) who are unable to attend school for medical reasons. Hospital Homebound Teachers collaborate with classroom teacher(s) and medical personnel to determine appropriate curriculum pacing, and to update student progress. In addition, the hospital homebound teacher assists students in the transition back to school.
The purpose of Hospital Homebound is to enable students who are absent from school for an extended length of time due to medical reasons to continue their learning. Teachers of hospital homebound students provide direct instruction to students but responsibility for long-term planning of the student’s educational program remains with the student’s classroom teacher(s) in collaboration with the Hospital Homebound teacher and, in some cases, a school-based team. A plan for return-to-school is the shared responsibility of family, school and Hospital Homebound teacher.
Referrals to Hospital-Homebound must be discussed with your home school principal who will provide a Hospital Homebound Request Form and guide you through the referral process.
