Homebound / Homebased Services

Richmond Public Schools Pupil Placement Services strives to meet the needs of Richmond Public Schools’ students by making homebound and home-based placement decisions that address students’ social and emotional needs, while maximizing their capacity to receive carefully planned instruction designed to provide optimum academic support and promote academic growth.

Our goal is to provide our students with the most valuable homebound or home-based experience possible, through effective placement, communication, planning, and consideration for individual needs.

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.
