Mileage Reimbursement Policy and Forms
At the beginning of each semester be sure to complete a Travel Request Form and submit to the Student Teaching Office in Room 123 Stayer Hall. The number on this form should be entered under "Travel Request #" on each of your travel vouchers.
Field Services is only authorized to reimburse supervisors for mileage accrued during the supervision of student teachers. All other field experience mileage (i.e. early field experience) must be submitted to your department.
Please keep the following in mind when completing your travel voucher form for supervision of student teachers:
1. Please complete your submissions online and print a hard-copy. This not only makes the form easier to read but eliminates error since the online form will calculate your mileage and amount of reimbursement.
2. Please list each destination on a separate line on the voucher form.
3. Be sure to include the dates and times of your travels.
4. MU will pay for both your trip to a school site and your return trip however, MU can only pay you from the origin nearest to the school site; this would either be from MU or from your home. This is regardless of your physical origin. The same is true for your return trip. EXAMPLE: If you are traveling from Lebanon, PA and supervising in Solanco School District you may only claim the distance from MU to the school in Solanco School District and then back to MU.
5. If you are visiting multiple sites in one day MU will pay you for the full distance between school sites. Please arrange your schedule as efficiently as possible.
If your submission needs to be adjusted to conform to the MU standards, as set by PASSHE, you will be notified by email prior to your payment.
Please submit your Travel Voucher Forms monthly to Room 123, Stayer Hall. Be sure to submit the original copy of your form with your signature. Please note that submissions will only be paid if submitted within 90 days of your travel. Processing time in Field Services is included in the 90 day limit.
Feel free to contact Field Services if you have any questions. You may also call (717) 871-5561.
Observation Dates / Grade Sheet / Online Grading
Observation Dates / Grade Sheet (revised October 2017)
The Observation/Grade Sheet should be turned in to the Department Secretary at the end of the first half assignments. For second half and full semester assignments, this sheet is due at the end of the semester to the Department Secretary.
Online Grading: At the end of the semester enter the grades from your Observation/Grade sheet through the MAX Banner Portal icon at www.millersville.edu. You will receive an email from the Registrar’s office with instructions titled “Web Grades Reporting for Faculty: USER’S GUIDE.” Be sure to complete this final step since student certification applications cannot be processed until a grade is entered online.
Payroll Forms for Cooperating Teachers
Our cooperating teachers were sent Cooperating Teacher Packets which included payroll forms (Cooperating Teacher Payroll Form & W9). Please check with your students' cooperating teacher to make sure they have submitted their payroll forms. We are not able to pay the co-ops until a Cooperating Teacher Payroll Form and a W-9 Form has been received. We need both of these forms for each student teacher a co-op sponsors.
If payroll forms have been misplaced please have the cooperating teacher email Field Services for new forms.
Payroll forms can be mailed to:
Student Teaching Office
PO Box 1002
Millersville, PA 17551
