Home Hospital Services

  • Home Hospital services are in-person tutoring sessions for students who cannot attend school for a period of 4-18 weeks due to sickness or injury. The purpose of these services is to keep students current in their regular academic classes. Services are provided at a student’s home or hospital room at the expense of SVSD.

    • Signature of Qualified Medical Practitioner with date and anticipated number of weeks of absence

    • Requested start date of services

    • Whether or not the 504 or IEP team needs to meet (if applicable)

    • Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) 

    • Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) 

    • Doctor of Naturopathy (N.D.) 

    • Doctor of Dentistry (D.M.D.)
