Hospital Homebound Overview

The Purpose of Hospital/Homebound Program:

Provide an alternative for the regular education student having a temporary medical illness that substantially limits one or more major life activities as it applies to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to enable the student to maintain their class work standards as agreed upon by the district school administration as outlined in the student’s Section 504 “Individualized Accommodation Plan” (IAP).

Provide an alternative for Exceptional Students having a medical illness if the illness impacts their class work as agreed upon by the Individual Education Program (IEP) committee.

Before the decision to place a student homebound is made, the following strategies must be utilized by the school and family:

  • After three consecutive missed days, the school must provide the parent/guardian with assignments for the student to complete and return them to the teacher upon completion.
  • Provide an alternative to traditional practices, enabling the student to maintain his/her class work by using interventions and accommodations:
    • Abbreviated class, and/or school day, and/or school week
    • Rearrangement or relocation of classroom for instruction
    • Alternative school setting such as Virtual School online courses
    • Utilize tutoring programs available in East Baton Rouge Parish
