Homebound / Homebased Services

We provide our students with valuable homebound or home-based experiences through placement, communication, planning, and consideration for individual needs

Richmond Public Schools Pupil Placement Services strives to meet the needs of students by making homebound and home-based placement decisions that addresses social and emotional needs, while providing optimum academic support through carefully planned instruction.

Richmond Public Schools (RPS) has a responsibility to meet the educational needs of children who are confined to their homes because of illness, injury, pregnancy, or emotional difficulties. Frequently, these children are unable to attend school for an extended period of time. Homebound instruction enables such children to continue their educational program while confined at home. Educational and physical modifications may be attempted before students are placed on homebound instruction.

Program Description/Goals:

Home-based services are determined by the student’s Individualized Education Plan teams.  Home-based services are also requested by the Disciplinary Review Hearing Officer for discipline related reasons. Students who have been charged with “certain” charges as indicated in VA Code 16.1-260G will receive home-based services until charges are reviewed and resolved.
