    The schools may furnish homebound instruction to those students who are unable to attend classes for an extended period of time due to a physical injury, medical situation, a severe emotional problem or any other reason deemed appropriate. The instruction is designed to provide maintenance in the basic academic courses so that when a student returns to school he/she will not be at a disadvantage because of the illness or the hospitalization. 

    To qualify for the program the student needs a written statement from a medical doctor requesting the homebound instruction, stating the reasons why, and estimating the time the student will be out of school. This statement needs to be sent to the Director of Pupil Services.

    Homebound instruction is offered in academic and vocational subjects which do not require laboratories and special equipment, subject in all cases to the availability of qualified teachers. Certified teachers are assigned to homebound instruction by the Principal with the approval of the Superintendent-Director.
