To Promote Comprehensive Continuing Education Programs for School-Age Pregnant Girls. Annual Report.
This report describes a research utilization and information-sharing effort focused on achieving national change in educational policies and practices toward school-age pregnant girls and promoting the development of comprehensive continuing education programs for them. As a result of the effort, a new Federal education policy with respect to school-age pregnant students and young families was developed and disseminated. This and other information was shared with educational officials on both Federal and regional levels, and mechanisms for ongoing communication and consultation were developed. On a State level, chief State school officers were reached through their own meetings. In addition, southern State education officials were reached through a special conference focused solely on pregnant students. Background materials and information were distributed to all. Finally, useful pamphlets and booklets (appendixes to this report) were prepared that will enable the projects and Federal, regional, and State education officials to aid more effectively those who wish to establish comprehensive continuing education programs for school-age pregnant girls.
