Birth Control Information

The issue of school involvement in the provision of family planning information is highly controversial and involves deep-rooted family and community values. School policies run the gamut from those that forbid discussion of birth control with individual students, to experimental programs that allow easy student access to family planning information and contraceptives (e.g., health clinics on or adjacent to school grounds).

Practitioners who work with adolescents must be knowledgeable of state law and local school policy regarding the provision of birth control information by school staff and be sensitive to community and family values. Providing competent advice on contraception to a minor in the school setting is probably permissible unless it conflicts with state or local policies (Fischer & Sorenson, 1996).
