School psychologists are called upon to handle sensitive and complicated information about students and their families on a daily basis. The correct legal and ethical response is not always clear. Many situations require school psychologists to navigate gray areas involving the sharing of data, respecting the rights of parents and meeting the needs of students.  Topics to be addressed include the following common issues:


·         Data sharing with law enforcement                                        

·         Parental right of access to a psychologist’s notes

·         Maltreatment reporting

·         Duty of care with respect to a student’s suicide ideation, pregnancy or drug use

·         Data sharing with divorced parents

·         Common special education legal disputes
