Married Students

The Board of Education will comply with state law in reference to married students attending school.  

Pregnant Students

New York State Education Law provides that resident students over five (5)and under twenty-one (21)who have not received a high school diploma are entitled to attend school in the district in which they reside.  The law further requires that a school district provide for this instruction and also to provide for home instruction for those students of legal age who are unable to profit from instruction in schools.

In view of the above, administrative regulations will be developed to implement the terms of this policy to provide instruction as required by the New York State Education Law for students who become pregnant. The Superintendent, or their designee, is directed to consult with the school physician and the student’s personal physician in determining the form of instruction.

The form of instruction may be any of the following or a combination of the following:
a)    Remain in school with provisions for special instruction, scheduling, and counseling where needed
b)    Receive home instruction with a physician’s written requirements, or, for disciplinary reasons, with the Superintendent’s approval
c)    Attend BOCES programs
