DETAILS

Under Title IX and California law, pregnant students are protected from discrimination and schools are required to provide accommodations to these students so that they can remain full participants in and receive the full benefits of their education. In January 2016, new California law provided additional protections for lactating students, including providing lactation rooms for breastfeeding students. Unfortunately, many students are still unaware of their rights and end up forced into alternative schooling, or drop out altogether. This informational webinar will review the laws protecting pregnant and parenting students in California to enable practitioners to identify and remedy these harmful forms of discrimination, will share the results of the ABC’s of Breastfeeding Report Card grading lactation accommodations in K-12 schools in Los Angeles County, and will discuss next steps in expanding the impact of the report card.

1 hour MCLE credit available.
