These seven scenario-based activities let you practice being in the driver’s seat. Learn how to share sensitive information lawfully so that youth can get the supports they need to succeed in school and in life.
Our 20 case examples present real-life information-sharing situations involving youth, parents, schools, and law enforcement, juvenile justice, mental health, and child welfare agencies. In each example, information about a child or children is being sought. Each case example clarifies which laws are relevant to the situation, what the laws permit and prohibit, and how the professionals involved can proceed legally. The Juvenile Law Center contributed to the development of these case examples.
