What is Home Instruction?
How do I apply for Home Instruction services?

Home Instruction Schools provides educational services for all school aged children (grades K-12) who are unable to attend school due to orthopedic, non-orthopedic/medical, or psychiatric reasons.

From the Principal

Home Instruction,

 

Our goal this year was to focus on providing our students with rigorous instruction and support their maximized progress!

 

The plan this year required us to adhere to the most extreme adaptations when COVID affected our entire country.   I am so grateful for the response of our teachers, parents and mostly of our students. ​ Together, we made the changes we needed to ensure our shared success.

As we embark on this new time in our lives we must continue to dedicate ourselves to our students, strengthening our instructional practices and ensuring our students' safety.

Best wishes,

Ramona

Principal
