Hi, I am not a teacher but I'm a high school student with a question. I have been really struggling with mental illness, depression, and other issues, so I have been taking online classes. In order to show proof that I had a reason for not completing school work for a time when I was not completing work, we had to provide the school with notation from a doctor as well as records from a stay at a psychiatric hospital. I thought that just the top level school people who needed to see that for proof would have access to it. However, now from emails I have received from other teachers, it seems like they all know about it. Is this legal? To me it seems like this should be privileged information. I didn't want anyone to know about it who didn't have to, and them having intimate details of what I have been dealing with seems wrong. Thanks.
