Home Hospital Instruction

Home/Hospital Instruction

A student may be eligible for home/hospital instruction if they are confined to the home or the hospital due to a "temporary disability" as defined in Ed. Code 48206.3.  This is a temporary and highly restrictive placement.  Placement decisions are made by the Director of Student Support Services after a request is submitted by the parent, a Medical Verification is completed by the physician and a recommendation is made by the school nurse and site administrator.  (see home/hospital reference manual and forms below).

As a general rule, placement in home/hospital should be considered if the student is expected to miss up to 8 weeks of school.  Shorter absences should be handled by parent/doctor excuses and make-up work.  Longer absences should be referred to Davis School for Independent Study for consideration.

Students placed in home/hospital are served by a teacher (ideally from that student's school) who facilitates communication and assignments with their regular classroom teacher(s).

In order to request home/hospital instruction the parent should contact the school nurse.  The request and the medical verification (link below) must be completed with nurse and principal signatures before being submitted to the Student Support Services Director for final approval.
