Failure to Secure a Student Teaching Placement Due to Lack of Appropriate Placement Options

During the Placement process for student teaching, Hope College faculty/staff in the Education Department will make requests on behalf of upcoming student teachers according to State and Departmental rules and processes. In some very rare cases, despite earnest efforts and through no fault of the student, it may not be possible to secure a student teaching placement in the planned semester due to exceptionally limited options in the field. In this case, the student teacher will be notified of the need to postpone the student teaching placement. The Director of Student teaching and/or designee will continue to see an appropriate placement for the following semester.

Effective January 19, 2011
