Homebound Tutoring

  • Homebound Tutoring

    Home/Hospital services are provided to a student when a licensed medical physician determines that the student will or is anticipated to, due to a medical condition, be out of school for a minimum of two consecutive weeks of school (10 days) on an ongoing, intermittent basis.  

    What does "ongoing, intermittent basis" mean?

    An "ongoing intermittent basis" means the student's medical condition is of such nature or severity that it is anticipated the student will be absent from school due to the medical condition at least 2 consecutive days multiple times during the school year, totaling at least 10 days of absences.
