A Message from the Principal:
As we begin the new semester, I look back at the start of this school year and see the tremendous growth and progress of the teachers of Home Instruction. It is through the hard work and determination of Home Instruction teachers that students are able to continue their educational progress, while their traditional schools are unable to service them. I know that teachers are working with very difficult cases, and are able to make a difference in the lives of the students and the families. Thank you and keep up the hard work!

What is Home Instruction?
Home Instruction is designed for students with handicapping conditions, who are in need of instructional services while they are confined to their homes because of a medical, orthopedic and/or serious emotional condition. This category provides instruction for students who are unable to attend their primary educational program in a school setting. The Home Instruction program follows the curriculum as prescribed in the students' most recent primary educational program, with modifications as appropriate. Because of this temporary educational service, the homebound students are able to return to school with little or no loss of educational progress.
