- Home / Hospital Instruction - is a state (OSPI) program that provides funding for schools to provide limited scholastic support to students with a health issue. To qualify, students must be expected to miss at least four (4) weeks of school, but no more than eighteen (18) weeks. In case of chronic illness, the services can be intermittent (Please indicate this on the application form). The form must be signed by the parent/guardian and the health care provider.
- Pregnancy and Postpartum - the "usual and customary" weeks of postpartum service are six (6) for a routine vaginal delivery and eight (8) for a c-section. Please do not exceed those numbers without indicating a reason the student is unable to attend classes because of her own medical needs.
- Please note that Health Services merely verifies the student’s eligibility for services and serves as a pass through for funding from OSPI. The school is responsible for finding a tutor and setting up the educational plan.
- There are strict requirements for reimbursement from OSPI for this funding so if/when the request is approved, please read the instructions carefully as we cannot fund services until H/H is approved. Buildings will be responsible for any expenses incurred beyond the limits of the program.
- Special Education Students - IMPORTANT: If a student cannot attend school because of a need related to his/her qualifying special education condition, do not submit a Home/Hospital application until after contacting the school's Section 504 coordinator and the IEP responsible staff for that student. Special Education manages funding for IDEA students who require Home Hospital support.
