Model Components of Comprehensive Programs for Pregnant School-Age Girls. Information Series #4.
In this report, the author identifies the needs and characteristics of the pregnant student population and discusses the components of a comprehensive program to aid these students. Starting with the three primary components--education, health services, and social services--the author presents a breakdown of each into subcomponents and describes their advantages and disadvantages as they relate to their effects on the students and on costs. Also detailed are the ease of subcomponent integration into comprehensive services and the additions necessary to insure effectiveness. Each primary component is presented as a sum total of its integral parts--e.g., education, which is discussed in terms of regular school program, standard school program other than regular school, and special school or special classes focused solely on pregnant students.
