WISD Homebase

About the Weslaco Independent School District Homebase Program

Homebase Services are for the pregnant WISD student who is ready to deliver, has already delivered, or is experiencing complications due to her pregnancy. The WISD Homebase program, for our pregnant teens, is the way to keep them in school, on track with their peers, and prepare them for graduation.

The Homebase student is at home to work, rest themselves, have their baby, and care for their baby. But they are still in school. These are the basics of the Homebase program:

  • The Homebase teacher will provide the student with 4 hours of face-to-face instruction each week
  • If the doctor has recommended the student to be on bed rest, then they must be IN BED or lying down at all times
  • Students are allowed up to 6 weeks postpartum, after that time they return to school
  • To return to school, FOR ANY REASON, before the 4th postpartum week, the doctor must give the student written permission
  • Below are the links to the Medical Verification Form and the Need for Homebase Instruction Form, both of which are required for the Homebase student
