Pregnant and Parenting Students
Back Email Article  Print Article

Students who are excused due to illness or other urgent reasons may be provided with homebound instruction. Becoming pregnant or being a parent does not, in itself, necessitate that a student receive homebound instruction. Certification of a physician is required for any students, including pregnant or parenting students, who are requesting homebound instruction because of an illness or other urgent reason.


For suggested guidelines of attendance involving a pregnant or parenting student, see the Pregnant and Parenting Basic Education Circular (BEC).
