HCBS Services During School Hours-Suspension of Guidance Notification

School districts in Kansas are utilizing a variety of methods to provide an education to their students.  Many are providing either remote or hybrid education opportunities, rather than on-site learning.  School Districts in Kansas do not currently have the infrastructure required to provide the needed supports to students with disabilities on the scale necessary during this unprecedented time.  Further, it is impossible to predict when a COVID-19 outbreak might occur in a school, necessitating closure of on-site learning and services.  The health, safety, and welfare of school-age waiver participants is paramount.


Pending further guidance from CMS, in circumstances where school-age children who have an IEP are receiving remote education, either full-time or part-time, need medically necessary services or personal care services to support them, and the local school district lacks resources/qualified staff to provide needed in-home services during school hours, HCBS services will be permitted to be rendered during school/educational hours.
