K-12 Home Instruction Program

  • The Columbus City Schools K-12 Home Instruction program provides instructional services to students who are unable to attend regular school as a result of illness, injury, or who are hospitalized for four consecutive weeks (or longer). The program is intended to be used on a short-term basis with students receiving one hour of home instruction per school day.

    The majority of this instruction is in the academic areas of English, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Science. However, a teacher can also be assigned for elective courses including foreign languages and business education.
