Homeschool and Homebound Policy

Homebound Policy:

- Any Student who is out of school for a prolonged period can apply for and will be provided a homebound teacher.
- A medical doctor must certify that the student has the need for homebound services.
- School administrators and teachers strongly recommend that any student, who can qualify for homebound instruction during prolonged illness, should use this service.
- Since homebound students by nature of their condition cannot attend regular school, they are prohibited from participation in extracurricular activities except for eighth-grade promotion.

Home School Policy: 

- If a family chooses to homeschool, then the child will be eligible to participate in school and extracurricular activities such as athletics.
- Home-schooled students must be registered at the Grundy County Central Office in Altamont, TN (931-692-3467) by August 1st each year.
- Fifth grade and seventh-grade students will be tested at the closest elementary school in the spring of each year as required by the Tennessee Department of Education.
