FYI: Teen Parents, Dependent Children, and the MCAS


Teen parents with a Certificate of Completion of coursework from high school are considered to have a diploma for TAFDC teen parent eligibility purposes even if they did not pass the MCAS and get a degree. Teen parents in this situation who are taking the MCAS retain teen parent exemptions until taking the MCAS or for 6 months, whichever is sooner. A dependent child who has a Certificate of Completion and is over 18 remains eligible until turning 19, taking the MCAS, or for 6 months after finishing high school, whichever is soonest.
