Pregnant Minor

This program is designed to meet the needs of pregnant teens.  Academic requirements for a high school diploma can be satisfied while the student also learns important prenatal and parenting skills.  Modesto City Schools offers this program at two sites, Downey and Elliott.  This is a voluntary placement for the semester of their pregnancy.  Student wishing this program are to meet with the traditional school administrator to complete the pregnant minor referral forms.  Students must present proof of pregnancy at the time of the referral which includes the due date. 

Modesto City Schools also has a Cal-SAFE program which provides day care for the teen parent's infant and/or toddler while the teen is currently enrolled and attending school at no charge to the teen.  This program is offered at three sites, Downey High, Modesto High and Elliott Alternative based on space available.
