ABSTRACT
Increasing numbers of public schools are adopting the use of mental health screening programs for the purpose of identifying suicidality or psychiatric conditions in children and teens. Concerned observers maintain that these programs commonly violate the requirements of federal law, because they fail to provide properly informed consent for evaluation and special services. This article presents a critical analysis of the requirements of informed consent in education, discusses the problems of consensus, and offers basic facts that might be communicated by pertinent authorities in order to facilitate state compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
