The IPE allows an Indiana school psychologist to work outside the school setting with some limitations. Unless the school psychologist has the IPE endorsement or has an HSPP (Health Service Provider in Psychology), it is against Indiana law for a school psychologist to provide any school psychology services unless hired by a school corporation. An IPE school psychologist may work independently (such as in a private practice) or may work for an organization (such as a mental health facility). Please refer to IC 20-28-12-3 for additional description of the IPE legislation and requirements.
IASP serves as the contract agency with the Indiana Department of Education to process IPE applications and renewals.
IASP has created a flyer with information on what you can and can't do with your IPE. What Can I Do With My IPE?
