Hospital /Agency Programs
The Minneapolis Public Schools Hospital/Agency Program provides individualized educational instruction for children and adolescents placed within the district's six hospitals. We also work with the agencies called Minneapolis Teen Challenge and Children's Residential Treatment Center. Our students come from all over the metropolitan area, as well as from greater Minnesota, surrounding states and some foreign countries. Although some of our students may be with us for only a few weeks, others receive services for most of the school year. The requirements for service include the expectation that students will be unable to attend their home school for 15 consecutive days or more due to the placement in hospital or agency, and parents must give their permission. For some programs the medical provider makes the referral to the school program and for other programs, parents, social workers or other hospital staff refer the student to the school program. Over 800 students receive educational services through these programs each school year.
