    Confidentiality
    A counseling relationship requires an atmosphere of trust and confidence which must not be compromised by the counselor except where there is a clear and present danger to the counselee or to other persons. The school counselor may share information gained in the counseling process for essential consultation with other appropriate persons specifically concerned with the student.
