Homebound PlacementHomebound placement is the most restrictive educational placement. Homebound is a short-term placement for a student that has a physical or mental condition requiring the student's absence from school for more than ten (10) consecutive instructional days over the period of the school year. To begin the homebound process, please contact Amy Campbell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mendy Williams (email@example.com). The homebound office will provide the parent/guardian with a medical release to complete for the student's physician recommending homebound placement. After receiving the completed medical release from the parent/guardian, the homebound office will fax the Knox County Schools (KCS) Homebound Paperwork to the student's physician listed on the medical release. When the student's physician completes and returns the KCS Homebound Paperwork, the homebound office will review the paperwork, and send it to the student's school to schedule a meeting to discuss the physician's recommendations.
Homebound is not a guaranteed placement. It is recommended for the student to remain in communication with teachers and provide notes for absences.
