Texas Education Code

Sec. § 37.054
Parental Notice, Consent, and Access to Information


Before a student is admitted to a school-community guidance center, the administrator of the center must notify the student’s parent or guardian that the student has been assigned to attend the center.


The notification must include:


the reason that the student has been assigned to the center;


a statement that on request the parent or guardian is entitled to be fully informed in writing of any treatment method or testing program involving the student; and


a statement that the parent or guardian may request to be advised and to give written, signed consent for any psychological testing or treatment involving the student.


If, after notification, a parent refuses to consent to testing or treatment of the student, the center may not provide any further psychological treatment or testing.


A parent or guardian of a student attending a center is entitled to inspect:


any instructional or guidance material to be used by the student, including teachers’ manuals, tapes, and films; and


the results of any treatment, testing, or guidance method involving the student.


The administrator of the center may set a schedule for inspection of materials that allows reasonable access but does not interfere with the conduct of classes or business activities of the school.
