To piggyback off Ms I's thread in substitute teaching, I was wondering are there any other districts or schools out there that require regular education teachers to do home visits for all of their students. After I was hired I was surprised (and stressed) that this was one of our requirements. You don't get any special training for such, and it's done on your own time and own (gas) money. It's also up to you to decide and find someone you would like to come with you for safety and protection as the neighborhoods were extremely violent. Only teachers in the lowest-scoring inner-city schools had to do such. Teachers in higher-scoring schools didn't have to do this at all. Was/is anybody else required to do this as a regular ed teacher?
