What is Home/Hospital Instruction?

Home/Hospital instruction is provided to students who are temporarily unable to attend school for an estimated period of four weeks or more because of a physical and/or mental disability or illness.  The program does not provide tutoring to students caring for an infant or a relative who is ill.

School districts determine student eligibility for Home/Hospital tutoring based on the requirements found in Washington Administrative Code WAC 392-172A-02100 and guidelines for district administration of the Home/Hospital Instruction Program.
  • Home/Hospital instruction is limited to services as deemed necessary to provide temporary intervention as a result of physical and/or mental disability or illness.
  • Home/Hospital services are limited to a maximum of 18 weeks.  Weeks of absences may be consecutive or intermittent but may not exceed the 18-week limit.
  • Tutoring is not provided during school vacations unless students are enrolled in a district summer school program.
