about School:

If my child is pregnant, does she have to attend school?
Yes.  Pregnancy does not absolve the need to comply with the compulsory attendance law requirements.  Your daughter may continue to attend her regular high school, or she may request a referral to the Teen Parent Program within the LAUSD.

         made for assistance.

      The participant is married.

      The participant is emancipated.
