• Program Purpose

     

    SAPP, a dropout prevention program, provides assistance for school age pregnant and parenting students, helping them:

     

    • Remain in school
    • Develop marketable skills
    • Earn a diploma
    • Acquire skills for lifelong self sufficiency
    • Become the best possible parents

      The School Age Parent Program provides childbirth education to pregnant students, and parenting education to students who have a child, including teen fathers, who are enrolled in LISD. Classes offer instruction in prenatal care and child development as well as a peer support system under the guidance (direction) of case manager(s) and teachers. Academic achievement and attendance are closely monitored so that students may be successful in completing their education.
