Legal Guidance and Practice Implications for the Arizona House Bill 2161 (Parent Bill of Rights)
Virtual Event on 10/27/22 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
In April, 2022 the Arizona Senate passed HB 2161, which focuses on increasing parent rights for minor children within the education system. HB 2161 went into effect in September, 2022. Specifically, HB 2161 expands parental rights regarding the upbringing, education, health care, and mental health of their minor children. Since its enactment, mental health providers and other school personnel have questioned important aspects of the bill such as record keeping, mental health universal screening, and how to balance keeping parents informed while also providing students with a measure of confidentiality.
Lori Bird, JD, from Udall-Shumway will provide critical guidance to participants regarding understanding HB 2161 and how to engage in ethical practices while still adhering to these new guidelines.
Practicing school psychologists will be available to help provide guidance on practice implications for the field.
