Internship Placement Policy
The College of Education places its teacher candidates in Internship II exclusively in SACS-accredited public schools. Teachers of Record must have their placement approved by their department head and the Office of Field Experiences, Clinical Practice and Partnerships, prior to registration for Internship II.
Placements are arranged by the Office of Field Experiences, Clinical Practice and Partnerships, in conjunction with the local school systems and principals, and in compliance with the College of Education policies and procedures governing such placements. Interns may not attempt to arrange their own placements. Interns will not be placed in schools where close relatives (siblings, children, spouse, parents, grandparents) are employed. Internship placements must be in a setting aligned with a cadidate's program of study and certification requirements.
Placements will be organized based upon grade leve bands required and determined by GaPSC.
Note: Each Early Childhood Education internship (Internship II/Student Teaching and Graduate Internship) must be completed in a self-contained P-5 classroom.
