SACRAMENTO â€“ A 12-year-old girl is prohibited from bringing aspirin to California public schools without a note from her mother or father â€“ but in many California districts she may sign herself out of classes, leave her junior-high campus without parental permission, secretly have an abortion and return to school before the end of the day â€“ and her own family may be none the wiser.

California's San Juan Unified School District sought to change its own policy from one that prohibits students from being absent without parental knowledge except during medical emergencies to guidelines that would allow a student to leave for a "confidential medical appointment."
