General Education Home Hospital Instruction
Health Services, in collaboration with Student Hearing & Placement, and Capital City Independent Study School, has developed a new model for delivering Home Hospital Instruction. We now offer a program called Medical Independent Study as a less restrictive setting for students who are eligible for Home Hospital Instruction.
We have provided a Decision Tree to help schools determine if it is appropriate to refer a student for our program(s). We have also provided a new, simpler application packet to provide to families.
The new process:
- Completed applications will be sent to HomeHospital@SCUSD.edu where Health Services will review and approve or deny the application.
- If approved, a meeting will be scheduled at Capital City School between the family, Principal, Counselor and School Nurse.
- Once the individualized instruction plan is developed, the family will decide whether to proceed or not, as this is an elective program.
- All instruction will be provided through Capital City Independent Study School.
