Homebound Supplemental Instruction


  • The Parent/Guardian shall make a written or verbal request for Homebound Supplemental Instruction (HBSI) to the HBSI Building Coordinator at the building where the child attends school.
  • The HBSI Building Coordinator will coordinate a meeting with the parent, school counselor, school nurse, and general education teacher(s) to gather initial information regarding the reason for the request, and discuss whether a disability is suspected [504/IDEA]. A follow up meeting will be scheduled to review the evaluation results and discuss the need for HBSI.
  • If the student is found to have a disability and that disability requires HBSI, a final meeting will be scheduled to discuss the procedures that will be followed including the schedule of classes, assignment requirements and timelines, possible accommodations, and communication methods.
