Homebound Services

Homebound Instruction:  Temporary Illness

Is available to all students with temporary illnesses or injuries, regardless of their disability status.  Cheyenne Mountain School District Policy IHBF http://www.cmsd12.org addresses Homebound Instruction.

Homebound Instruction:  Special Education/504 Plan

Homebound Instruction is a placement on the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) continuum.  Students who are eligible have an IEP or a 504 Plan.  The purpose is to provide special education or related services to a student in their home.  Since it is the most restrictive form of placement, homebound instruction is identified on the IEP or 504 as a service with time frames.  The IDEA/Section 504 defines homebound instruction as an educational placement.

A student is eligible for homebound services if:

The student is unable to access his or her school campus due to a known illness and/or hospitalization or due to a physical or mental impairment or condition that requires recoupment at home or an IEP team determines that homebound is the least restrictive placement.

Students who have health impairments due to chronic or acute health problems (e.g, heart condition, tuberculosis, rheumatic fever, nephritis, asthmatic sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, epilepsy, lead poisoning, leukemia, or diabetes), which are severe enough to limit strength, vitality, or alertness which adversely affect educational performance may be eligible for homebound services.

Verification of Illness

Verification from the student's physician, psychiatrist or other relevant professional and the student's parents or legal guardian is necessary in determining eligibility.
