Home and Hospital Instruction

  • The Home and Hospital Instruction Program ensures the continuity of education for students who will be out of school for more than 14 days in a school year at home or in a hospital per a qualified physician's statement. Home and Hospital Instruction services are provided to qualified Boston Public Schools students, Special Education students on private tuition and Boston resident students participating in the METCO program under state regulation 603 CMR 28.03(3)(c).

    The program provides appropriate instruction with the opportunity for students to maintain uninterrupted equal access to school curriculum. Home and Hospital Instruction collaborates with schools, parents, agencies and hospitals to ensure alignment of educational goals and curriculum, and to ensure proper referrals to services based on students' needs.
