    Compensatory Education Home Instruction

    According to the Texas Education Code Section 19.081, Compensatory, Intensive and Accelerated instruction shall be provided to a student who is pregnant or is a parent. The YISD Guidance and Counseling Department Transitional Education Program Compensatory Education Homebound Instruction (CEHI) is the mandatory support service component required to offer for a pregnant (Pre and Post-partum) student. CEHI provides academic services to the student at home when a valid medical necessity for confinement during the pregnancy prenatal or postpartum periods prevents the student from attending classes on a district campus. CEHI must consist of face-to-face contact with a certified teacher of the District providing academic services to the student. Texas Education code Section 29.081(d) identifies a student at risk of dropping out of school if the student is pregnant or is a parent.

     General Education Homebound Instruction

    The Transitional Education Program will ensure that students, who are confined due to a medical condition, receive instructional services while they are confined to home or hospital bedside. According to the Ysleta Independent School District Policy EEH (local) instruction shall be provided to any student who meets the following three criteria:

    • The student is expected to be confined at home or hospital bedside for a minimum of 20 days. The days need not be consecutive.
    • The student is confined at home or hospital bedside for medical reasons only.
    • The student’s medical condition is documented by a physician licensed[1] to practice in the United States.


    The standard practice will ensure that all Ysleta Independent School District (YISD) students that access the Transitional Education Program will be served according to YISD EEH (LOCAL) policy.
