8450 Home Tutoring (Homebound Instruction)


Resident children attending public or nonpublic schools who are unable to attend school because of physical, mental or emotional illness or injury as substantiated by a licensed physician are eligible to be instructed at home or in a hospital by a tutor provided by the School District. These students will be provided with such instruction in accordance with New York State Education Law and Commissioner's Regulations.


         The District makes provisions for homebound tutoring upon referral from the Medical Director or the Director of Special Programs following the guidelines established by the Superintendent of Schools for placing a student on homebound tutoring. All related circumstances are generally investigated by the school social worker.


Procedures for students requiring home tutoring shall be developed under the direction of the Superintendent or his/her designee.
