The School of Education’s clinical experiences will meet the requirements outlined in the Commissioner’s Regulations Part 52 during the 21-22 academic year. However, pursuant to the document from NYSED “Guidance for NYS Colleges and Universities on Reopening for the 21-22 Academic Year” effective July 31, 2021, there will be some clinical experience flexibilities in the types of student engagement permitted during the COVID emergency. The total number of clinical hours must remain the same.
NYC field experiences, practica, and internships will be conducted virtually supporting online instruction in schools or via alternative methods. If candidates go to a school (upstate or out of state), teacher candidates will comply with stated safety precautions in place at the respective schools.
