What are the expectations for fall with regard to my clinical field placement?
If you are completing your teacher assisting, student teaching, or
graduate practicum experience in the fall you are expected to adhere
to the class/school schedule and structure of your assigned
cooperating teacher/PK-12 school, or practicum, setting. You will be
expected to follow the health and safety guidelines required by your
PK-12 school setting. You will be expected to complete all
requirements of the teacher assisting, student teaching, or graduate
practicum experience outlined in your field course syllabi.
Additional Information for Undergraduate and Graduate Teacher
If you haven’t already done so, you should contact your assigned
cooperating teacher prior to the start of the fall semester to learn
what the school’s return to learning plan is for fall and what the
cooperating teacher/your schedule will be.
As we learn more from our partner schools about their return to
learning plans, the COE will communicate this information to you. It
is likely that you may be placed in a school that is utilizing a
hybrid format where students are receiving both face-to-face and
online instruction or a staggered schedule where different students
attend school face-to-face at alternating times of the day, on
alternating days, or alternating weeks.
