Guidelines for School-based Coordinators and Administrators

School administrators and/or teachers play important roles in supporting the coordination of practicum placements with the practicum program managers and in supporting practicum experiences of teacher candidates.

Communicate with teacher candidates regarding school philosophy:

  • How to become contributing members of the school community.
  • How to implement health and safety procedures with school and faculty advisors where required.


  • Support school advisors and teacher candidates in problem-solving issues.
  • Provide cross-checks for teacher candidates if necessary.
