COVID-19 Student Teaching Information

COVID-19 Information

  1. Student teachers are expected to follow all health and safety guidelines from the state, St. Olaf, and their schools.
  2. Student teachers must notify the Director of Field Experiences and their cooperating teacher(s) if they test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
  3. Student teachers will follow the learning model that is being implemented in their school as schools may shift between distance learning, hybrid, and in person learning models during the semester.
  4. Since the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) will not enforce the edTPA requirement during 2020-2021, student teachers will not complete the edTPA.
  5. Student teachers, cooperating teachers, and college supervisors will be notified about additional changes throughout the semester. All updates will be available in the Student Teaching Handbook.
