Fall 2020 -College of Education and Human Services Position Statement on Field Experience

Your placement for internship or student teaching may require you to participate in the class remotely, either through video of an in-person classroom or through the learning management system used by the district.  Your placement may require you to participate in classroom instruction in person.  The teacher certification programs at Millersville will require that you engage in the internship or student teaching as your school has determined, with the understanding the instructional mode may change during the semester.  Your obligation is to either participate in the internship as the classroom, school and district has determined or take a leave of absence from the university until Spring 2021.
