Pregnant Students

The Board of Education recognizes the opportunity to receive an education as a prerequisite to leading a full and productive life. Therefore, pregnant students will be encouraged to continue participation in the public school program.

As soon as pregnancy is medically confirmed, the Board recommends that the student and her parent(s) or guardian(s) consult with the Building Principal and/or other appropriate staff to plan continuation of the education program.

Every effort will be made to see that the educational program of the student is disrupted as little as possible; guidance counseling services and homebound instruction, if recommended by physician, are provided. Note: A minor under 16 must continue her education.
