An educational institution shall not apply any rule concerning a student‘s actual or potential parental, family, or marital status which treats students differently on the basis of sex.

Such minors who do voluntarily participate in such alternative programs shall be given educational programs, activities and courses equal to those they would have been in if participating in the regular program.
