10-Day Limit on Absences

Demonstration teaching (DT) is designed to be an intensive, sequential experience. While we do our best to accommodate unanticipated health issues or other circumstances beyond your control, due to the nature of the activity and the coordination required with schools and school districts, teacher candidates may not be absent for more than 10 total days throughout the DT experience.


If your circumstances require more than 10 absences, you will be required to withdraw from your current cohort and apply for the next cohort. Refer to the Self-Withdrawal: Approved article in this handbook if you wish to be considered for an approved withdrawal.
