Student Teaching Placement
When a student teaching placement is canceled by the student so late that the supervising teacher cannot take another student teacher for the given school year, the student's account will be charged for the payment of the honorarium to the supervising teacher.
If a request for placement in another setting is initiated by the student teacher, a full honorarium will be paid by the student to the supervising teacher according to how close the change is made to the student teaching period. If such change is initiated by the teacher, principal, University supervisor and/or the Director of Teacher Education, the student will be charged the student teaching fees.
A student teacher from Olivet is placed at a site in the area where a contractual agreement has been made with the local school district for such a placement. While the student has the opportunity to express his or her preference for a site, the final decision for placement will be made by the Director of Teacher Education.
