Information gathered from and regarding students will be shared with others in the community on a need to know basis according to the following parameters:
- When we are required by law, as in instances of suspicion of child abuse, current suicidal risk, or threat of imminent serious harm to others.
- When we speak to supervisors/consultants in order to inform them about our work and to benefit from supervision and consultation in enhancing our performance on the behalf of students.
- When school policy and practice or good professional judgment indicates that we should inform peers, administrators or teams (e.g. division heads, advisors, Support Services team, grade coordinators, etc.).
The above parameters for sharing will be published in school documents (e.g. handbooks, website, etc.) and students will be reminded of these parameters at the beginning of conversations when talking about matters that might be considered personal. When the information is of a personal nature, the minimum information necessary will be shared with others who need to know.
