Medical Homebound Instruction

Medical homebound instruction

Medical homebound instruction is a service that is available for students who cannot attend school for a medical reason.

  • A physician must certify that the student has such a medical condition but may benefit from instruction, and must fill out the medical homebound form that the school district provides. The form for Medical Homebound can be picked up from the school or by contacting jmatthews@k12.com.
  • The school leader then decides whether to approve the student for medical homebound services.
  • The school will consider the severity of the student’s illness or injury, the length of time that the student will be out of school, the impact that a long period away from school will have on the student’s academic success, and whether the student’s health needs can be met at school virtually.

The goal of homebound medical homebound instruction is to provide continuity of instruction and to facilitate the student’s return to a regular school setting as quickly as possible. State Board of Education Regulation 43-241 outlines the provision of medical homebound services.
