The iDecide toolkit has been designed to provide the school leaders and school staff with the necessary information to promote shared decision making regarding the development, implementation, evaluation and improvement of inclusive policies. One of its functions is to empower school leaders and educators in common everyday decision-making processes, in order to secure more inclusive environments for pupils. It provides teachers and school leaders with practical tips and supportive literature about the characteristics of pupils in the process of decision making. The implementation of the toolkit focuses on 23 certain categories of decision, which in turn, influence marginalized school populations. While developing the toolkit, 13 broad categories of marginalized populations have been identified and, based on them, concrete recommendations have been developed to enable the school staff to give voice to all stakeholders.
