Home & Hospital

Home & Hospital
  • ​Any student enrolled with SRCS who develops a temporary health issue (see above) that will last three to eight weeks is eligible to apply for Home/Hospital instruction, unless it is evident at the onset of the health issue that the student will be out for more than three (3) weeks.
  • Students not enrolled in SRCS who are receiving inpatient treatment at a facility located within the district attendance areas are eligible to apply for Home/Hospital services.
  • All Home/Hospital requests for students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) must be approved through a “placement IEP” that is held with the student’s case manager and school site IEP team.
  • All Home/Hospital requests for students with a 504 plan must be approved by a 504 team at the School of Residence.
  • Students over 18 years of age and not enrolled in SRCS do not qualify for Home/Hospital instruction, unless they have an Individualized Education Plan.
  • Students who are not enrolled in a SRCS school or program and who live within the SRCS boundaries need to enroll in their home school (school in their attendance area) to receive Home/Hospital instruction.
  • Specialized/advanced courses may not be offered through Home/Hospital instruction (i.e., AP, IB, Honors, foreign language, lab science courses, electives requiring specific tools or equipment, and some higher level mathematics courses). Courses may not be A-G approved by the University of California.
  • Home/Hospital instruction is not intended as a general program of independent study. Reevaluation of a student’s health condition will be required from the physician/psychiatrist after eight (8) weeks of Home/Hospital instruction.
