Homebound/Hospital Tutoring

  • 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.
