Homebound Instruction

Homebound Instruction is for students unable to attend school due to various physical, behavioral, or emotional difficulties.  A Homebound Application must be approved by the Homebound Coordinator prior to this service being provided.  To be considered, the homebound application must be completed & signed by a MD, DO, psychiatrist, or psychologist. 

If approved, Homebound Instruction will be provided according to the current school year calendar.  Instruction will not be provided during Christmas vacation, spring break, school holidays, or during the summer.  The time allowed by the Missouri State Department of Education for their reimbursement is five hours weekly.  Therefore, assignments left by the homebound teacher must be completed between visits. However, IEP Teams have some flexibility in determining weekly hours.

The length of time approved for Homebound Instruction varies depending primarily on the student's condition.  In the event Homebound Instruction needs to be extended beyond the original approved application time, written notification from the attending physician, psychiatrist, or other state required professional must be submitted to the school district prior to the possible extension of homebound services.  It then must be approved again.
