Physically Handicapped Students (JQA)

Physically handicapped students including those temporarily disabled by illness, operation or accident authenticated by a physician's order will be eligible for homebound instruction; however, all programs will meet the criterion of the least restrictive environment.

Students who are temporarily handicapped are encouraged to attend school if able. If the student is unable to attend school and is ineligible for homebound instruction, it shall be the responsibility of the student or parents to secure lesson assignments from each of the student's teachers in order to keep abreast of the student's school work.

Approved: NOVEMBER 18, 1996


Students who are injured and have difficulty walking or climbing stairs on a temporary basis may secure permission from the building principal to be late to class.

Each such permit will expire Friday at 4:00 p.m. of each week and must be renewed at the beginning of school each Monday morning.

Students with injuries which would prohibit normal participation in physical education must present a physician's statement prohibiting such activity to the building principal at the time the student reenters school after sustaining his injury.

Staff members who have contact with students who are permanently handicapped may consult the student's cumulative records so that they will be able to focus on such student's strengths as well as weaknesses.
