Texas Education Code

Sec. § 29.014
School Districts That Provide Education Solely to Students Confined to or Educated in Hospitals


This section applies only to a school district that provides education and related services only to students who are confined in or receive educational services in a hospital.


A school district to which this section applies may operate an extended year program for a period not to exceed 45 days. The district’s average daily attendance shall be computed for the regular school year plus the extended year.


Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, a student whose appropriate education program is a regular education program may receive services and be counted for attendance purposes for the number of hours per week appropriate for the student’s condition if the student:


is temporarily classified as eligible for participation in a special education program because of the student’s confinement in a hospital; and


the student’s education is provided by a district to which this section applies.


The basic allotment for a student enrolled in a district to which this section applies is adjusted by the weight for a homebound student under Section 48.102 (Special Education)(a).
