The Illinois School Code provides for a continuation of learning when a student has had their classroom activities disrupted by physical/medical problems.
The purpose of Home/Hospital Services is to facilitate learning while students are unable to attend school for a physical or mental health condition. Home/Hospital Services may be provided to any student when it is anticipated that, due to a medical condition (in the opinion of a licensed physician), the child will be unable to attend school for a period of 10 or more days or on an ongoing intermittent basis.
Home/Hospital services require:
- Physician’s note
- Specific diagnosis
- Recommendation of services
- Length of time out of school
- Parental consent
During student absence from school, a certified teacher (service provider) will serve as a liaison between the school and home/hospital. The classroom teacher continues to be responsible for class content and will assist in providing needed information/materials.
To apply for home/hospital services, please complete the forms below and return them to your child’s school or fax them to the District Student Services office at 630.420.6566.
For further information regarding home/hospital services, please contact Lisa Xagas, Director of Student Services, at 630.420.6524.
