Expectant & Parenting Students

The California School Age Families Education Program, also known as Cal-SAFE, is a school-based program for expectant and parenting students and their children. The program provides academic and support services to help students to stay in school.

Child care and developmental services for their children are included. Most programs are linked to the local community and its resources.

The California Department of Education helps to support and manage Cal-SAFE in California.
