The Teen Parent Program is designed to meet the needs of pregnant or parenting students and their children. This voluntary program provides participating students with educational and ancillary services to facilitate the completion of high school. Services include:


Child care

Parenting education


Coordinated health care and social services

Student Eligibility Criteria

Pregnant and parenting students who are enrolled in a K-12 public school are eligible to participate in the Teen Parent Program. Pregnant students must present medical documentation as proof of pregnancy. Parenting students must present the child’s birth certificate or other official medical record(s) of the child’s birth.

Teen fathers, who are currently enrolled students, are also encouraged to participate in the Teen Parent Program. Documentation of fatherhood must also be presented. A child’s birth certificate with the father’s name documented or a notarized affidavit of fatherhood is acceptable.

The decision to attend the Teen Parent Program is based on a voluntary agreement between the student, the home school guidance counselor, and the student’s parent/guardian.

An appointment is then made with the appropriate Teen Parent Program staff member to continue the enrollment process.
