Homebound and Hospitalized Services
Michigan Department of Education: Homebound and Hospitalized Services for Michigan Public School Pupils
Homebound and hospitalized services provide continuity of educational services for pupils with medical conditions that prevent them from physically attending school during the school year. The certification must be by a physician who is either an M.D. or a D.O. or a licensed physician's assistant; psychologists, chiropractors, or other professionals may not certify a person as eligible. Homebound and hospitalized services are designed to be a self-study program that allows pupils to maintain their coursework and studies while they are unable to attend school. These services allow the classroom teacher to work through the homebound and hospitalized teacher to help distribute course materials, deliver instruction, and monitor pupil progress in the course.
Please contact your building principal, school counselor, or Student Services department for further information on Homebound Services.
