Home Hospital Instructional Services


The APS Home Hospital Program is a short-term instructional service for regular education students who are temporarily unable to attend school on campus due to medical reason for a minimum of ten (10) school days. The Home Hospital teacher works closely with the student’s counselor, school nurse and teacher(s) to assist the student while he/she is out of school.

The goal of the Home Hospital Program is to keep the student up-to-date with his/her studies during the time that the student is unable to be physically present on campus.

This short-term assistance, provided by Home Hospital teachers, ranges from two (2) to five (5) weeks.  Depending on the student's circumstances, the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) can request an extension. The extension for Home Hospital, if approved, would range from one (1) to three (3) weeks maximum in length.

Home Hospital is not a separate school. Home Hospital teachers do not create the student's educational curriculum. Rather, the Home Hospital teachers go to the student's school (typically once a week); consult with the classroom teacher(s) and gather assignments, quizzes, etc. Home Hospital teachers then go to the student's home, hospital, etc. where they provide one-to-one support, answer questions, provide instruction, and return the completed schoolwork to the student's school.
