Practicum Information and Forms:

As a Teacher Education student, you are required to complete 18 hours of practicum per professional course, with the exception of PHED 360 and EDUC 216.  Completed hours are DUE to your instructor at the end of each course.


Practicum sites are assigned to you by the Director of Field Experience and cannot be changed.  You will be allowed to request two counties of preference upon admittance to the program.  This initial request will be reviewed once per semester at a REQUIRED Practicum Seminar (3 available attendance dates in April and November of each year). 


You CAN complete Practicum hours in a school where you are CURRENTLY employed with approval of the principal and Director of Field Experience.  ALL SCHOOL EMPLOYEES MUST COMPLETE PRACTICUM FIELD EXPERIENCE IN AN ALTERNATE SETTING FOR THE THIRD SEMESTER OF COURSE WORK AND MAY NOT STUDENT TEACH WHERE PREVIOUSLY EMPLOYED.  Additionally, you must be able to show proof that you are not being paid for any practicum experience time.


You are required to attend one Practicum Seminar per Fall and Spring semesters.  Please check your email for these dates at the beginning of each semester and make plans accordingly. At these seminars, we review any missing/incorrect paperwork and discuss any concerns/questions regarding the program.  Failure to attend one of these meetings will result in delay of your practicum placement for the following semester.


Any questions/concerns regarding Field Experience, including practicum and/or student teaching should be directed to:


Michelle Clupper, Director of Field Experience
