Homebound

  • Community Services Homebound Program

    The Community Services Homebound Program offers instruction by certified teachers to students enrolled in an HISD campus who will be absent for medical reasons for at least four weeks. It is offered as part of the district’s service to students in grades K-12 with non-contagious illnesses or other medical reasons as documented by a licensed US physician. Medical reasons may include accidents, surgeries, infections, diseases and illnesses. Mental health referrals must be pre-screened (see Community Services website for screening process instructions prior to making a mental health referral). Instruction takes place at the student’s residence.  Homebound referrals are initiated by the campus of enrollment nurse or principal designee, using the referral packet forms found on the Community Services website. Homebound placement should not be considered to be a long term or permanent alternative to traditional campus-based instruction.
