Remote Instruction for Students with Medical Needs

  • A student unable to attend school because of a temporary, chronic, or long-term medical disability may be eligible to receive home/hospital tutoring. Eligibility is determined by the Illinois State Board of Education rule governing placement options for home/hospital services. Call your school’s principal if your child may require these services.

    A student who is unable to attend school because of pregnancy will be provided home instruction, correspondence courses, or other courses of instruction before the birth of the child when the student’s physician indicates in writing that she is medically unable to attend regular classroom instruction. These services will also be provided for up to three months following the birth of the child or a miscarriage.

    Periodic conferences to determine continuation of home/hospital services will be held between appropriate school personnel, parent(s)/guardian(s), and hospital staff to coordinate course work and facilitate a student’s return to school.
