Change During the EDL Practicum

If you are required to change your supervisor or placement during your practicum, you must complete the steps below and wait for approval before logging hours at your new site and/or with your new clinical supervisor. This is a time-sensitive change request because you are required to log hours every week in your practicum months. If you are completing this change request while in your practicum, and the change is already in effect, you are out of compliance. You have 30 days to correct the issue or withdraw from the program.

 

Step 1: Discuss the need for the change with your program mentor.

 

Step 2: Send an email to Teacher Success teachersuccess@wgu.edu. The email must include the information below.

  • The reason for the change.
  • The school(s) and/or clinical supervisor (CS) you are withdrawing.
  • What change is needed (New CS, new secondary site, new elementary site). Provide the new site or CS information. This should include names, email addresses, phone numbers, and titles.

Step 3: Include the required attachments:

  • If you have logged hours in your practicum, a copy of your current log, signed by your supervisor, approving the completed time.
  • If your practicum and /or course is a six-months and you have completed two or more months, you are required to have your CS submit your observation 1 and midterm or the midterm for your current practicum course. Requests to change your CS after month four cannot be honored.
  • If you are a 12-month practicum and you have completed four or more months, you are required to have your CS submit your observation 1 and midterm or the midterm and final for your current practicum course. Requests to change your CS after month seven cannot be honored.
  • If your employed school is changing or you are changing your CS, submit a new site agreement.
