Summary

The issues of sex discrimination and student pregnancy and parenting are addressed in this guide, which attempts to provide schools covered by Title IX (or other interested agencies) with assistance in identifying and eliminating biased or discriminatory practices. First, Title IX is discussed, with particular focus on its specific references to pregnancy and parenting and its outline of ways in which schools cannot discriminate against pregnant or parenting students or employees. Other laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of pregnancy or sex are summarized briefly. Next, a step-by-step guide is provided for assessing equitable treatment. A detailed process is outlined for evaluating equity in the four major areas where school-based discrimination against pregnant and parenting students is most commonly found: (1) admission to programs and activities; (2) treatment in regular programs and activities; (3) treatment in special or separate schools, classes, programs, and activities; and (4) availability and quality of pregnancy-related health services. Two appendices contain the actual wording of the major portions of the Title IX regulations that deal with pregnancy and parenting, and charts for assessing equity in programs, policies, and services.
