In the course of developing relationships with students and their families, confidential information (about the student or the student’s family) is often communicated. It becomes necessary for the school social worker to decipher the (confidential) information that is relevant to the educational needs of the student. This critical process should not just evaluate information specific to academics, but should also include information that affects the social–emotional and mental well-being of the student. If the information revealed has no relevance to the academic success or social–emotional development of the student—that is, has no effect on learning—then the school social worker should evaluate the purpose, if any, of disclosing such information to others.
Role of the Social Worker Provide crisis intervention, counseling services, support, and case management. Build trusting relationships with students, families, and school personnel. Maintain the confidentiality of student and family.
