receive a public education nor to take part in any extracurricular activity offered by the school.
The District shall provide for maintaining the educational program of pregnant and married students. Students who, for an appropriate period of time, desire to continue their education in an alternative setting rather than continuing in the regular education program may be provided services through the special education program.

The decision whether to continue in the regular school program or in an alternative setting shall rest with the student.
34 CFR § 106.40
In the absence of leave policies for students with temporary disabilities, pregnancy and related conditions shall be treated as justification for a leave of absence for a period of time deemed medically necessary by the student's physician. Students shall be reinstated to the status they held when the leave began.
Married students shall have the same rights and responsibilities as unmarried students. This includes the right to participate in any extracurricular activities on the same basis, and subject to the same requirements, as unmarried students.
