Compulsory Attendance Bulletin

Revised Section 1103 for Compulsory Attendance

Reference: Bulletin 741 – Louisiana Handbook for School Administrators Chapter 11. Student Services §1103 Compulsory Attendance

A student who is enrolled in regular education or special education and who, as a result of health care treatment, physical illness, accident, or the treatment thereof, is temporarily unable to attend school, shall be provided instructional services in the home or hospital environment. (Homebound Instruction)

Homebound instruction shall be provided by a properly certified teacher once all required forms have been completed and signed by the school principal and the Homebound Supervisor.

If the regular education student has not previously been identified as a student with a disability that already has an IAP in effect, then an IAP must be completed to show Individual Testing in the case that any state/district test needs to be administered to the student at home.

Homebound instruction, at a minimum, shall be provided in the core academic subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

Consideration shall be given to the individual need for services beyond the core academic subjects for students with disabilities.

Homebound services may be provided via a consultative model (properly certified regular or special education teacher when appropriate, consults with the homebound teacher delivering instruction) for students needing such services less than 20 days during a school year.
