The mission of the School Program at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is to serve and advocate for school-aged patients and their families. School is an important part of a child’s life. When it gets interrupted due to a hospitalization, an educational liaison will provide support to you and your child. The School Program is committed to supporting our patients’ educational plan throughout hospitalization, treatment and long-term needs. Our goal is to ensure a smooth transition back to home and school.
Our School Program supports students in kindergarten through 12th grade who come to Riley at IU Health for a variety of treatments. The School Program has a staff of eight teachers and one supervisor, all with various teaching licenses. Each Riley teacher partners with the patient’s school to provide normalcy while hospitalized and also to ensure that an appropriate education plan is put in place prior to discharge.
Our educational liaisons cover many locations at Riley at IU Health:
