Practicum in Public Schools
There are two courses in the program that include a field experience.
- EPI 0945 Field Experience 1
- EPI 0940 Field Experience 2
EPI students who are employed as full-time teachers or long-term substitute teachers will be able to complete all of the field experience requirements within their own classrooms/schools. You will not have to take any time off from work to complete your field experience packets.
EPI students who are not employed as full-time teachers or long-term substitute teachers are required to complete 45 hours in a classroom to complete the EPI 0945 Field Experience 1and three days in a classroom to complete the EPI 0940 Field Experience 2. If you are working, check your schedule for the class dates and plan accordingly.
The EPI Coordinator will arrange all field experiences and assign schools and mentors to students currently not full-time teachers.
