Educational Leadership (EDL) Practicum Completion

You will complete your practicum by uploading your Educational Leadership Practicum Log to Taskstream (for non-Washington states). For other states licensing through Washington you will complete your practicum by uploading the Washington Educational Leadership & Activity Log to Taskstream. The Teacher & Principal Success team will pass your log after receiving two passed observations, one midterm, and one final evaluation. Your clinical supervisor (CS) will submit your two observations, a midterm, and final evaluation directly to WGU and you will receive automated copies of the forms. If you do not receive copies of your observations or final evaluation, contact your CS to ensure that the forms were submitted. You may also contact the Teacher & Principal Success team at teachersuccess@wgu.edu for additional questions or concerns.


The practicum in educational leadership also includes nine tasks that you will complete during your practicum. Practicum activities, coursework, and hours must occur every week and be evenly distributed over a minimum of six consecutive months.


For students in the states of AR, CA, OR, OH, TX, WA, WI & WY who license through the state of Washington, there are additional state-directed and WGU program requirements in how you will work through your practicum experience over 12 months (2 full registered terms) during an entire academic school year, which may include limited summer opportunities, and how those practicum hours and activities will be completed and recorded. The practicum courses here many not be taken in the same registered term and must be the final two terms of enrollment in your program. Carefully review the C774 & C775 Practicum in Educational Leadership I & 2 Courses of Study and the Washington Educational Leadership & Activity Log.


For students in all other states enrolled in LRT1, you will also follow state-directed and WGU program requirements in how you will work through your practicum experience over 6 months (1 full registered term) during an entire academic school year, which may include limited summer opportunities, and how those practicum hours and activities will be completed and recorded. The practicum course here must be in the final term of enrollment in your program. The activity log you will complete is the Educational Leadership Practicum Log.


For students in Missouri, there is an additional state required assessment, the MoSLPA, that must be completed during your practicum. Refer to the Teacher Licensure Home Page in the Student Handbook and the Missouri folder.
