What about confidentiality?
The issues discussed by your child with the school counselor are confidential. This means that information will not be shared with others who are not involved in the care and/or treatment of the child without informed consent by the parent and/or guardian. Please know, however, that a school counselor is required to report any issues of abuse or neglect. Also, confidentiality, like all educators, must be broken if there is a concern of self-harm or harm to others.
