The homebound program is a short-term placement for students expected to miss 11 or more school days due to medical issues. Referrals are processed through the homebound office where a release packet will be provided the parent/guardian to complete and return to the Homebound Office. Then, a medical statement will be sent to the student's physician to complete and return. Once the completed medical statement and information are received, the school's Support Team / IEP Team / 504 Team will meet to determine homebound placement. The homebound medical case manager will assist the teams in following Knox County Schools' protocol in determining if homebound placement is appropriate. Students placed on homebound are provided a teacher for assignments and instruction to compensate for time missed and facilitate transition back to their regular classroom.If you believe your child may require homebound services, please contact your child's school for more information.
