Home and Hospital Teacher Responsibilities
The Home and Hospital Teaching Program is provided by part-time non-contractual teachers who instruct students on an individual basis in a home school, home, hospital, or community setting. Teachers act as the liaison among students, parents, and home school in an effort to help students remain current with their regular classes.
Students typically receive six instructional hours a week on full-time Home and Hospital Teaching, unless otherwise recommended by the Home and Hospital teacher, IEP team or Problem Solving Team.
Home and Hospital Teachers are also expected to:
- Introduce themselves to both the parents of the student and the home school’s staff.
- Attend 60-day re-verification, 30-day review, and IEP team meetings, when appropriate.
- Teach students only in the presence of an adult. Teachers will never transport a student.
- At the conclusion of the assignment, give the parent or guardian a parent feedback form to be completed and returned to the Home and Hospital Teaching Office.
