Medical HomeboundSubmitted on: May 30, 2018
S.C. Code Ann. Regs. 43-241, students who cannot attend public school
because of illness, accident, or pregnancy, even with the aid of
transportation, are eligible for medical homebound or hospitalized
instruction. A physician must certify the student is unable to attend
school but may profit from instruction given in the home or hospital.
Should an approved student not be provided the medical homebound
instruction that he or she is entitled to receive, the student is
eligible to have the medical homebound instruction made up by the
district. This make-up may occur during the student’s remaining
eligibility for medical homebound instruction or may occur after the
student returns to school provided the make-up periods are not during
the regular school day.
S.C. Code Ann. § 59-40-50(B)(1), a charter school must adhere to the
same health, safety, civil rights, and disability rights requirements as
are applied to public schools operating in the same school district or,
in the case of the South Carolina Public Charter School District or a
public or independent institution of higher learning sponsor, the local
school district in which the charter school is located.
