Homebound or hospitalized instruction shall be provided when a student's condition will cause an absence of at least three weeks duration. A physician's note with specific detail of length of anticipated absence is required in order to initiate this process. Provided nothing in the student's condition precludes it, such instruction shall begin no later than two weeks from the first day of absence. Instruction shall be provided for up to two hours per day or ten hours per week for high school student. Where medical and other evaluative data indicate that these time requirements are too great for the student, revisions may be made. The student's guidance counselor should be contacted by a parent if homebound procedures need to be initiated. The school nurse is also part this team.
