Pregnancy Related Services
Pregnancy Related Services are support services, including Compensatory Education Home Instruction (CEHI), that a pregnant student receives during the pregnancy prenatal and postpartum periods. Districts may choose whether to offer a PRS program. If a district chooses to offer a PRS program, it must offer CEHI services as part of that program, as they are mandatory. The programs are designed to help students adjust academically, mentally, and physically and stay in school. These services are delivered to a student when:
- the student is pregnant and attending classes on a district campus;
- the pregnancy prenatal period prevents the student from attending classes on a district campus; and
- the pregnancy postpartum period prevents the student from attending classes on a district campus.
Texas Education Code §29.081(d) identifies a student at risk of dropping out of school if the student is pregnant or is a parent. See the rules for operation of a PRS program in the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Section 129.1025, or on the Student Attendance Accounting Handbook page on the TEA website.
