This class is a field experience class. You will meet for weekly face-to-face sessions with your instructor throughout the semester and you will spend the balance of your class hours at a local elementary, middle, or high school. You will need reliable transportation. Bus service is not convenient to many of the schools served. You must have time in your schedule to visit the school at least two times per week for a minimum of 90 minutes at a time. Fridays are discouraged because of district recess and early release schedules. If you do not meet these requirements, contact the instructor or consider taking class during another semester.
There are several prerequisites that you must complete prior to beginning your field experience for this class. Field experience will begin on or before the fourth week of class. These mandatory items are required by the schools in which you will be placed. They are for your safety, as well as the safety of the students you will serve.
If you believe you have any of these documents already on file with the Education Department, please email us at email@example.com.
