arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Specialized services may be provided to pupils determined eligible pursuant to section 3030(f). Such services include but are not limited to:

(1) Individual consultation;

(2) Home or hospital instruction; and

(3) Other instructional methods using advanced communication technology.

(b) For pupils whose medical condition is in remission or in a passive state, the IEP team shall specify the frequency for monitoring the pupil's educational progress to assure that the illness does not interfere with the pupil's educational progress.

(c) When a pupil identified pursuant to section 3030(f) experiences an acute health problem which results in his or her non-attendance at school for more than five consecutive days, upon notification of the classroom teacher or the parent, the school principal or designee shall assure that an IEP team is convened to determine the appropriate educational services.

(d) If there is a pattern of sporadic illness, the IEP team shall convene to consider alternative means for the pupil to demonstrate competencies in the required course of study so that the cumulative number of absences do not prevent educational progress.
