No student, whether married or unmarried, who is eligible to attend district schools shall be denied an educational program solely because of pregnancy, childbirth, pregnancy-related disabilities, or actual or potential parenthood; nor shall a pregnant student under the age of seventeen (17) be excused from the requirements of compulsory attendance solely for reasons of pregnancy or maternity.

2. Authority

  1. Development of a curriculum for the alternate educational program to which the pregnant student may be assigned on her request.
