Question on homebound....

Yes, there are several homebound teachers who must visit students' homes. The student must be medically unable to come to school, for either short- or long-term services. This is coordinated through the district's special education office, and the first point of contact is usually at the school, with either an administrator or the school's special ed lead teacher.

Yes , I have a friend whose daughter has cystic fibrosis and she missed a lot of school . They were able to get homebound services where a teacher would bring her school work whenever she was not able to attend school .
This young lady was able to keep up with her classes .
When my son was sick with mono (which lasted 2 1/2 months) he did not qualify because he was contagious .
Its a great program

I have had 2 kids that were homebound. My daughter broke her neck in 2000. She had to have surgery and was in a halo for 15 weeks. She was in 8th grade. Then my son had to have his colon removed in 2002. He had a temporary illiostomy and the dr. told us he would be better if he was homebound. This was in Bartow cty, but it is a great program. With both of mine the teacher came to our home once a week. She would work with them and answer questions. If they had problems or questions we could call her and she would come back by if she needed to. As I said it was a great program and it worked great for both my kids that needed it.
