School Privacy

People have the right to be free from intrusion into personal matters, even in a school setting. The right to student privacy extends to education records, admissions, and conduct, for example. Generally, a student's right of privacy is violated when personal information is disclosed to unauthorized third parties without consent, or when a student faces an unauthorized search of his locker or backpack. Still, administrators are often faced with having to balance a student's privacy with the public's right to know -- especially when it involves the safety of other students and members of the community. This section includes information on school privacy matters, including drug testing, school violence, and weapons at school. Choose from the links below to learn more.
