Homebound Education Services

Homebound and home-based instructional services may be available as a temporary service for Stafford County Public Schools' students who are unable to attend school because of medical, disciplinary, or other reasons.  When a student is identified by a parent or guardian or a member of the school staff as missing an excessive number of school days due to a medical condition, the counselor and/or school homebound coordinator should be notified immediately. If the student is eligible for special education or 504 services, the special education department chair, special education designee, or 504 coordinators should also be notified. These individuals work with the family to determine if a referral requesting homebound instructional services is appropriate and, if so, help those involved complete the referral.  All homebound referrals should be obtained following a meeting with the school counselor and/or administration. Additional information may be provided by contacting the Office of Homebound Services at or 540-658-6500.
