School Board Policies on Pregnant and/or Married Students. Educational Policies Development Kit.
National School Boards Association, Waterford, CT. Educational Policies Service.
This report provides board policy samples and other policy resources on pregnant and/or married students. The intent in providing policy samples is to encourage thinking in policy terms and to provide working papers that can be edited, modified, or adapted to meet local requirements. The report points up changing attitudes toward pregnant and/or married students and discusses the relative conservatism of board policies on the subject. The report suggests that the function of schools is to provide education for all students and advises boards to seek legal consultation for guidance in drawing up policies on this subject to avoid being pushed into litigation.
