Your Legal Rights

If you are pregnant and/or parenting, here are some things you should know about your rights under the Iowa law:

“Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex—including pregnancy and parental status—in educational programs and activities.”

“All public and private schools, school districts, colleges, and universities receiving any Federal funds (“schools”) must comply with Title IX.*”

**This basically means the school cannot treat you differently than other students based on your pregnancy or parental status!**
