        provide the following information to the building principal
        or his or her designee of any public, private or parochial

                (iv)  The disposition of the case.
            (2)  If the child is adjudicated delinquent for an act or

        felony, the court, through the juvenile probation department,
        shall additionally provide to the building principal or his
        or her designee relevant information contained in the
        juvenile probation or treatment reports pertaining to the
        adjudication, prior delinquent history and the supervision
        plan of the delinquent child.
            (3)  Notwithstanding any provision set forth herein, the
        court or juvenile probation department shall have the
        authority to share any additional information regarding the
        delinquent child under its jurisdiction with the building
        principal or his or her designee as deemed necessary to

            (4)  Information provided under this subsection is for
        the limited purposes of protecting school personnel and

        arranging appropriate counseling and education for the
        delinquent child. The building principal or his or her
        designee shall inform the child's teacher of all information
        received under this subsection. Information obtained under
        this subsection may not be used for admissions or
        disciplinary decisions concerning the delinquent child unless
        the act or acts surrounding the adjudication took place on or
        within 1,500 feet of the school property.
            (5)  Any information provided to and maintained by the
        building principal or his or her designee under this
        subsection shall be transferred to the building principal or
        his or her designee of any public, private or parochial
        school to which the child transfers enrollment.
            (6)  Any information provided to the building principal
        or his or her designee under this subsection shall be
        maintained separately from the child's official school
        record. Such information shall be secured and disseminated by
        the building principal or his or her designee only as
        appropriate in paragraphs (4) and (5).
        * * *
        Section 3.  This act shall take effect in 60 days.
