Title IX Requirements Regarding Pregnant and Parenting Students: What Every K-12 School Needs to Know

One of the lesser known areas covered by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) relates to pregnancy and parenting students. In recent years, the Department of Education has provided greater attention to this area, including issuing guidance supporting such students and noting that it is imperative for students to avoid discrimination as they strive to stay in school. Schools must ensure their compliance with the laws and regulations, including making accommodations for pregnant students, excusing certain absences for pregnancy or childbirth, and ensuring that such students are not excluded from participating in educational programs.

Please join Richard Verstegen for this discussion regarding the rights afforded to students from discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from any of these conditions.

Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Understand the types of assistance that a school must provide to a pregnant student, including providing leaves of absence and other accommodations.
  • Learn the various different areas in which the law provides protection to pregnant students, including in areas of admissions and employment.
  • Review requirements related to ensuring students fully participate in educational programs, including extracurricular activities, honors classes, or other programs.
  • Understand the various laws that can also be impacted by such students, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
