Homebound Program, 1980-81.
Phoenix Union High School District, AZ. Research Services.
The Phoenix Union High School District Homebound Program enrolls students who are unable to attend school for at least 3 months due to illness, disease, accident, pregnancy, or emotional or physical handicapping conditions. Homebound classes are carried out through special telephone consoles and home visits. This report describes the Homebound Program operations (including instructional requirements, scheduling, equipment, referral, registration, grading, enrollment statistics, and terminations) and presents the results of a survey conducted to measure the opinions of students, parents, staff, classroom teachers, community agencies, and health services providers regarding the program's effectiveness. The results of the survey are uniformly positive, with a majority of all respondents rating the program as "excellent" over all. The report concludes with a number of recommendations for program improvement. (WAM)
