Homebound Instruction Information

Students enrolled in the Peters Township School District (PTSD) are occasionally temporarily prevented from attending regular classroom instruction due to physical or mental illness or injury or other urgent reason. In accordance with Chapter 11 (Attendance) of the regulations promulgated by the State Board of Education PTSD offers homebound instruction to students who are temporarily precluded from attending a regular classroom due to such condition.

The forms which should be completed prior to starting homebound instruction are below.
 
 
Parents/guardians should contact their child's building counselor and/or principal to request homebound instruction for those confinements expected to last at least ten school days.
 
In the event a student requires homebound instruction for a period that exceeds three months, the parent/guardian must provide a request in writing to the Assistant to the Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Mr. Michael Fisher.  The request may be no later than 10 days prior to the date upon the student's original homebound instruction period is scheduled to end, supported by a medical doctor's statement explaining the reason for the student's need for continued homebound instruction and a revised anticipated length of confinement.  A new request must be submitted for every additional three-month period subsequent to the original three-month homebound instruction period and must be approved by PDE.  (22 Pa. Code 11.25)
