General Education Homebound (GEH) services provide instruction to eligible students who are at home or in a hospital setting.
Students served through GEH have a medical condition or extended illness that prevents attendance in school for at least four weeks, as documented by a physician licensed to practice in the U.S.
GEH instruction may also be provided to chronically ill students who are expected to be confined for a period of time totaling at least four weeks throughout the school year, as document by a licensed physician. Decisions regarding services are determined by a General Education Homebound committee.
When services are provided in a private setting, such as a home, there must be an adult other than the student and the teacher present in the home.
