Mileage request forms for travel must be completed before any travel takes place.  Mileage should be estimated on the request forms at the approved university rate.  Please estimate the mileage from either your home or the campus, whichever is the shortest distance.  If there are changes in the schedule, please e-mail this change information to Jill Johnston. This will be attached to the request copy.

If there are concerns regarding student teacher performance and related visitations, please discuss it with the associate dean/director of Field Services.  During these discussions, several options may become available to help the student teacher. 


Evaluation Requirements

The University Student Teacher Supervisor will:

Use the following forms for all observations and evaluations:

Observation form,

PDE 430 form and supplement,

Teacher Candidate Work Sample Scoring Rubric,

Attendance and Grade form.

Meet with each student teacher at the end of each placement either on campus or via e-mail to discuss the student's final evaluation (STPP, PDE 430/430A) and grade (University Attendance and Grade Report form) for the placement.  This meeting must take place before the end of the placement. 


Travel Request and Travel Vouchers

Travel request forms must be completed as soon as possible and submitted to the Office of Field Services.  Please complete the form with all requested information, including a calculated estimate of travel mileage and meal reimbursement.  Meal reimbursement is now $2.35 for lunch if the travel is more than 15 miles from the base. 

Travel voucher forms are to be completed by the end of each placement and submitted to the Office of Field Services.  Mileage is to be determined from the base with the shortest distance, e.g. from the residence (base) or from campus (base), whichever is shorter.

It is suggested that a travel log be kept throughout each semester.  The supervisor may be asked to submit detailed documentation to explain the mileage on the submitted voucher.  An example of a log format is available upon request.
