The Governing Board recognizes that responsibilities related  to marriage, pregnancy, or parenting and related  responsibilities may disrupt a student鈥檚 education and  increase the chance of a student dropping out of school. The  Board therefore desires to support married, pregnant, and  parenting students to continue their education, attain  strong academic and parenting skills, and promote the  healthy development of their children. The district shall not  discriminate against, exclude, or deny any student from any  educational program or activity, including any class or  extracurricular activity, solely on the basis of the student鈥檚  pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of  pregnancy, or related recovery.
