What is Hospital Homebound Instruction (HHB):

Hospital/homebound (HHB) Instruction is designed to provide continuity of educational services between the classroom and home or healthcare facility as specified in GA HHB Rule 160-4-2-.31. General and special education students whose medical needs, either physical or psychiatric, exclude them from attending school for a limited period of time are eligible.

HHB instruction is not intended to supplant regular school services and are by design temporary. The student must anticipate being absent from school for a minimum of ten consecutive or intermittent school days due to medical or psychiatric conditions, as specified in GA Rule 160-4-2-.31. The student’s inability to attend school for medical psychiatric reasons must be certified by the treating licensed physician (medical) or licensed psychiatrist (emotional) who provides treatment for the presenting diagnosis.

For more information please click the Hospital Homebound Q & A link. If you feel your child meets the eligibility requirements please seek information regarding the application process from your School Counselor, School Social Worker or School Nurse/Cluster Nurse.
