• Pregnancy Related Services

    Pregnancy Related Services are support services, including Compensatory Education Home Instruction (CEHI) that a pregnant student receives during the pregnancy prenatal and postpartum periods.
     
    These services are delivered to a student when: 
    • Student is pregnant and attending classes on a district campus
    • The pregnancy prenatal and/or postpartum periods prevent the student from attending classes on a district campus

    A PRS Team will coordinate and provide services to pregnant/parenting students.  The team consists of a district coordinator, school nurse, school counselor, and school administrator.

    The primary responsibility of this team is to support pregnant/parent students to fully develop their academic, career, personal and social abilities.  In addition the PRS Team will: 

    • Participate in planning, implementing, and evaluating a comprehensive support program to serve all pregnant/parenting students and to address the special needs of students who are:
      • At-Risk of dropping out of school
      • In need of modified instructional strategies
    •  Communicate with students' parents or guardians and make referrals as appropriate in consultation with parents or guardians.
