There are many ways to support pregnant or parenting students- online courses, hybrid schedules, and partial day schedules are a few examples. However, not every school in every district has access to these options or resources. This pregnancy plan was created for use at Garinger High School in Charlotte, NC.Per district policy, students who are pregnant must be advised by a counselor of their academic options while planning to participate in school to the fullest extent possible during pregnancy. In addition, pregnant students are allowed 4 weeks out of school following delivery unless additional time is requested by the treating physician. To simplify this process and support students’ academic progress, attendance, and connection to community resources, I created a pregnancy support plan during the 19-20 school year. So far, I have used this plan with 8 students, and it has been a benefit to the student, student services staff, and teachers.
