Home and Hospital Instruction
The purpose of Home and Hospital Instruction is to provide instruction to a student with a temporary disability in the student's home, hospital or other residential health facility. A temporary disability is defined as a physical, mental or emotional disability that happens while a student is enrolled in school and after which the student can reasonably be expected to return to school. The primary outcome of Home and Hospital Instruction is to maintain a student at the student's former level of performance while recovering from the temporary disabililty.
It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian of a student with a temporary disability to notify the school district. Education Code Section 48206.3 specifies that for attendance accounting each clock hour of individualized instruction counts as one day of attendance. The Home and Hospital Instruction Medical/Mental Health Service Request form needs to be completed in order to faciliate the approval process.
