TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Annual Report for Homebound Instruction 2005-2006

 

The Board of Education through the Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia requires that homebound instruction shall be made available to public school students confined at home or in a health care facility for periods that would prevent normal school attendance. Fiscal year 2007 funding is provided through the current appropriations act.

 

The reporting of Homebound Instruction Services data for school year 2005-2006 will be collected through the Single Sign-On for Web Systems (SSWS) that allows each user to have access to many different data collection processes, as well as other applications, with one single identification and password. Instructions explaining the automated Annual Report for Homebound Instruction reporting system are in Attachment A. The data requested will include: homebound teachers license number, hourly rate of payment and number of hours worked.

 

The data must be submitted electronically through the SSWS, which may be accessed at: https://eb01.vak12ed.edu/ssws. Individuals who will be entering data and do not have a current homebound password will need to contact the designated Single Sign-On for Web Systems (SSWS) Account Manager designated for their respective school division.

 

The completed form must be printed, signed by the superintendent, and mailed by October 1, 2006, to Gwen P. Smith, school health specialist, Office of Student Services, Department of Education, P.O. Box 2120, 20th floor, Richmond, VA 23218-2120.
