Serving Pregnant and Parenting Students: Requirements for School Districts.
Bolt, Dona Horine
Before the passage of Title IX of the Civil Rights Act in 1972, pregnant and parenting students throughout the United States were often expelled from school. This manual for Oregon school administrators and social-service personnel provides information on the school-enrollment laws that affect pregnant and parenting students and describes some of the resources available to meet their unique needs. The introduction describes the impact of teen pregnancy and parenting and presents related Oregon vital statistics. Section 2 specifies requirements for complying with federal legislation and section 3 describes Oregon legislation, policies, and goals. The fourth section provides an overview of related Oregon statutes and administrative rules and the fifth section describes programs for pregnant and parenting students. Statewide plans for implementing 1993 legislation and local plans for programs are highlighted in the sixth section. A list of statewide resources is included. Appendices contain a checklist, sample forms, and tables showing the 1993 incidence of pregnancies and live births to teens in Oregon counties and 1993 statistics for pregnancy and live births to Oregon teens under age 18.
