The Home and Hospital program is a short-term or intermittent instructional service. The educational services provided to students enable them to continue their academic work while preparing for their eventual return to school. The educational programs provided to students who have been approved for the Home and Hospital program are online instruction, home teaching, or a combination of the two.
The e-Learning Center offers online instruction to middle and high school students who have been approved for Home and Hospital services. Teachers instruct through a blended-model approach that allows students to participate in direct instruction as a member of a class and also offers students the opportunity to work independently to complete assignments. With 24/7 access to digital content, students can complete assigned work at any time of the day or night. Online instructors follow the Baltimore County curricula and teach through the use of Moodle, a course management system, as well as Blackboard/Collaborate, a web conferencing tool. One-to-one teaching is provided by tutors who instruct students on an individual basis in the home or hospital setting. Teachers are liaisons between the students, the parents, and the regular schools in helping students maintain the pace of their regular classes. One-to-one tutors also follow the Baltimore County curricula.
* All programs provide differentiated instruction and supports for special needs students.
