Our program serves and supports students from every community. Students may be homebound, hospitalized, in agencies, pregnant or parenting, and are temporarily unable to attend a traditional school.
At Community Services, our programs address the needs of students who are confined to their homes, partner hospitals or partner agency sites and are unable to receive instruction in a typical classroom setting. Both general and special education services are available to students. Working closely with parents, home-zoned schools, physicians and partnering local agencies, Community Services teachers and staff provide appropriate instruction from kindergarten through grade twelve. Community Service programs are temporary placements based on identified medical need.
Both HISD and out of district students are eligible to apply for services in our programs. See the Community Services website for complete list of eligibility criteria by program.
Personnel at the student’s home school compile referral data and each student undergoes an individualized process to determine eligibility and placement. Partnering hospitals/agencies assist in identifying students for services. PRS students are referred through campus PRS liaisons.
We have moved!
Please note: We have moved to Wharton Village, the temporary academic campus that will house us while our current school is rebuilt as part of the 2012 Bond Program. Wharton Village is located at 1101 Taft St., just north of Gregory Lincoln Education Center near the corner of West Dallas and Taft streets. We expect to remain at this temporary location throughout the construction process. Our new campus is expected to be ready by fall 2018.
