Home/Hospital Instruction
Home/Hospital Instruction (HHI) provides the opportunity for a student to continue his/her current educational program while under a temporary disability that makes attendance in regular day class or an alternative education program impossible or inadvisable.  A temporary disability does not include a disability for which a student has been identified as an individual with exceptional needs (i.e. student is receiving special education pursuant to Education Code 48206.3).  HHI is a service, not a school.  All students need to be enrolled in a Bakersfield City School District (B.C.S.D.) school to receive HHI.
For assistance with Home/Hospital Instruction, please contact Esmeralda Rolon Valencia at (661) 631-4627.
