Homebound and Hospitalized Services for Michigan Public School Pupils
Providing Homebound and Hospitalized Educational Services for Michigan Public School Pupils
Purpose of Homebound and Hospitalized Service
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 pupil’s inability to attend school due to a medical
condition must be certified by the pupil’s licensed attending physician.
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.
