Home Based Instruction

IEP/504 Team Determination of Home-BASED Placement

 

Home-BASED Placement is designed for students with IEP or 504 plans currently in place. If, for some reason, the IEP/504 Team decides that a student’s educational needs are better met at home, a Home-Based Instruction Plan is discussed with all involved with the child’s education and if appropriate, Home-Based Instruction is put into place.

There are no medical requirements for Home-Based Instruction and is solely based on the needs of educational needs of the child as determined by the IEP/504 Team.

 

Generally, the process is as follows:

  1. IEP/504 meeting is convened and the team determines home-based services are needed. At this time, Case Manager should provide parent with Parent and Student Guidelines for each to sign.

  2. Case Manager consults with School Counselor to develop Instructional Plan which would include:
    a. type of instruction (Blended Learning or Direct Instruction)
    b. list of classes
    c. number of hours necessary for instruction.

  3. Case Manager notifies school social worker, administrator, and school counselor of team’s decision (Home-Based Services Instruction Notification form).

  4. School Social Worker works toward identifying a home-based teacher/coach. The school social worker will provide home-based teacher with appropriate material such as time-sheet, and copies of the parent and student guidelines, etc.

  5. Home-Based teacher contracts parent to establish time and place of instruction.
