The Department of Education (DOE) allows Home Instruction for students in need of instructional services while they are confined to their homes because of a medical, orthopedic, or serious emotional condition. Home Instruction must be approved by DOE.
- Students in Grades K to 6 receive a minimum of 5 hours of home instruction per week.
- Students in Grades 7 to 12 receive a minimum of 10 hours per week.
The home instruction curriculum follows the student's most recent program, with changes as needed. The goal is to allow temporarily homebound students to continue their educational progress.
Contact the supervisor at your Borough Office of Home Instruction for questions about policies, practices, and procedures.
