When it is deemed appropriate, the services of a teacher may be obtained to provide instruction to a child with a temporarily handicapping condition.
The child's attending physician is asked to submit a completed form to the Director of Student Services and Special Education which includes the diagnosis, prognosis, and estimated length of time that the child will be remaining at home. There is a form available for this purpose and can be secured in the principal's office. Parents are encouraged to pick up the form and have it completed by the attending physician. In addition, the physician should designate the following: circumstances under which lessons should be taught (lying on a bed, or the period of time the child may be sitting), the maximum number of hours of instruction the child can tolerate per day and week, and other specific instructions which must be followed in order to effect normal recovery from the handicapping condition.
