When a student’s medical needs, either physical or psychiatric, keep them from attending school for a limited period of time, the student may be eligible to receive Hospital/Homebound services to coordinate a plan for continued academic participation with the goal of facilitating the student’s return to the classroom when possible.

Check out the Frequently Asked Questions below

Hospital/Homebound (HHB) is an academic service designed to provide continuity between the classroom and home or hospital for students whose medial needs, either physical or psychiatric, do not allow them to attend school for a limited period of time (Georgia State Board of Education Rule 160-4-2-.31 HHB services). HHB services are not intended to supplant regular school service and are by design temporary.

School counselors are the point of contact for the HHB process. Please speak with your student’s counselor about the need for services and to obtain an application.

Hospital/Homebound supports intermittent services for students diagnosed with chronic health conditions causing absence of 3 consecutive days per occurrence for a minimum of 10 days per year.

Following direction from the State of Georgia we only accept diagnoses for psychiatric or emotional illness from a Georgia Board certified licensed psychiatrist. Medical Referral forms submitted by psychologists, counselors, therapists or pediatricians are not eligible for HHB services.

The Educational Services Plan, or ESP, is developed in a school team meeting to determine what a student’s HHB services will look like. This meeting follows HHB eligibility, and may include some of the following individuals: HHB instructor, parents, teachers, school counselor, administrator, school psychologist, social worker, or school nurse. The purpose of the meeting is to clarify information pertaining to your child’s medical needs, instructional delivery, modifications, duration of services and other important HHB considerations.

Parents play a key role in the HHB process. Aside from having the treating physician or psychiatrist complete the Medical Referral Forms, parents are responsible for seeing that the student has a quiet, distraction-free location to work with an HHB instructor. Parents are to monitor their child’s academic progress weekly as students are expected to complete assignments when the instructor is not present. Parents (or a trusted adult 21 years or older) must remain in the home for the duration of the instructional visit. Consult the Guidelines for Hospital/Homebound Instruction for more information.

CCSD does not allow students who receive HHB services to participate in extracurricular activities, including travelling or competitive sports teams.

Students who are physically able to take the test at school will be tested in small group settings or at an alternative time to accommodate any physical considerations. For those unable to come to school to test, the school will provide an instructor who is proctor-trained and who can administer a paper version of the assessments.

Parents will sign a Completion of Services Form once services are no longer required. Once the student returns to school for any portion of the day, all HHB services are completed.
