Identity Support Plan for Elementary (IDSPE)
Audience(s): Health or Mental Health Professional, School Staff or Administrators
Focus Population: LGBTQ
Topics: Culturally Responsive Supports, School Climate and Classroom Supports
Schools should be a space where all students feel safe and successful every day—both in the classroom and throughout the school. The IDSPE was created to help gender-diverse students share anything that might make them feel unsafe or uncomfortable. It also gives students a chance to share and express how they feel about their name and gender expression or identity. This IDSPE Plan is a form designed to be filled out collaboratively by school staff, the student, and the student’s caregiver(s). The school district’s role is to support the development and implementation of IDSPE plans to foster an educational environment that is safe and supportive for ALL students.
