What are the rights of pregnant students?

Public schools and all schools that get federal funds are prohibited from excluding pregnant or parenting students from school, classes, or extracurricular activities, or pressuring them to drop out or change schools.


These schools must provide pregnant students the same accommodations that students with other temporary medical conditions are given, including the ability to make up missed classwork, attend doctor's appointments, take time off for childbirth and recovery, and learn in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.


These schools are not allowed to punish a student who choose to terminate a pregnancy or reveal a student's private medical information. Source: https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/students-rights
