Homebound Instruction

Homebound instruction is one of the services available to students ages 3 to 21 from their local school district, who, because of their condition, are unable to attend school safely or adequately.  This includes students who require instruction: 1) as a result of hospitalization (homebound to be given after hospitalization) or 2) in the home as a result of a temporary medical condition which prevents their school attendance. 

In order to receive homebound instruction for student:

  • The parent must sign a Release of Information.  The school district must obtain a completed homebound application form the attending physician as to the student’s diagnosis, and reason for confinement, and approximate length of time the student needs services. 
  • A recommendation for homebound must be for an extended absence, more than 3 weeks. 

School personnel must notify the Student Services Administrative Assistant at (636) 851-4007 as soon as possible once they learn of a student who is going to meet these criteria. 

  • Services are provided only from the date the application is signed by a physician. 
  • It is the responsibility of the home school to secure a teacher to provide homebound instruction for students.

Homebound application forms will be distributed by the Student Services Administrative Assistant, Annette Bradley, in the Administration Building (636) 851-4007, Fax: (636) 851-4094.
