School Committee - Policy Draft JIEE

The text of the proposed policy on Pregnant Students scheduled for discussion Tuesday night at the School Committee meeting is as follows:

File: JIEE


Pregnant students will be permitted to continue in school in all instances. The student, in consultation with the school staff, will develop an appropriate educational plan if it is agreed she should no longer attend school regularly.
Every effort will be made to see that the educational program of the student is disrupted as little as possible; that health counseling services, as well as instruction are offered; that return to school after delivery is encouraged; and that every opportunity to complete high school is provided.

LEGAL REF.: M.G.L. 71:84

Note: This policy is proposed for discussion only on Tuesday. The wording may get modified and would get moved to a second reading before be accepted according to School Committee policy.
