SUBJECT: Homebound Instruction Services Data Reporting

The reporting of Homebound Instruction Services data for school year 2009-2010 will be collected through the Single Sign-On for Web Systems (SSWS) portal. The data requested will include: homebound teacher’s license number, hourly rate of payment, and number of hours worked. In addition, in order to process any online instruction reimbursements, the license number of the teacher monitoring online homebound instruction will be needed.

The data must be submitted electronically through the SSWS, which may be accessed at: https://p1pe.doe.virginia.gov/ssws. The SSWS system will be open for submission of reports from August 16, 2010, through September 17, 2010. It is critical that divisions meet the September 17th deadline for submission of this report to ensure timely reimbursement from fiscal year 2011 state funds. Individuals who will be entering data, but do not have a current homebound password, will need to contact the SSWS Account Manager designated for their respective school division.

In addition to submitting the data electronically, the completed report must be printed, signed by the division superintendent, and mailed by September 17, 2010, to Tia Campbell, school health specialist, Office of Student Services, Department of Education, P.O. Box 2120, 20th Floor, Richmond, VA 23218-2120.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Campbell at 804-786-8671, or by e-mail at Tia.campbell@doe.virginia.gov.
