That would depend on who you're talking to. The school Social Worker can only share information if the student is going to hurt themselves or others. There is no confidentiality with other school officials unless the student is over 18 or emancipated. Any trouble the student may get into including illegal activities such as drug possession the school has the right to share… with your guardians. They may not, including the Social Worker or councilor, share any private information with other students. This includes if a friend lost their phone number & called the school to get it, they can't give out any personal information. If this is college we're talking about, the rules are a little different. In college you are the adult & if the teacher is sharing your private info in class it is up to you to stop it. And nobody should EVER let a teacher make them think it's ok for them to tell all other teachers your personal business so that everyone can "get on the same page". They WILL try to do this. They did it to me. Next thing I knew every teacher in the school was pulling me aside to talk about something embarrassing that I told one teacher in confidence. A Rule of Thumb: if you don't want everyone to know your business, tell the person who is legally obligated to keep their mouth shut. If the problem is getting introuble in school & not wanting your parents to find out, wait til the final bell rings to act a fool LoL
