If you begin your practicum on or after August 1, 2016, the completion of a practicum must take place over the course of a full school year. See the Washington Rules for more information. Your Educational Leadership standard pathway will be changed to account for this full school year requirement. This may result in an additional academic term of study.
A full school year shall mean at least the academic year. While principal candidates may begin their practicum in any month, they must complete practicum activities (verified on the clinical hour log) during every month that the school is open for a total of at least one academic year. The practicum does not conclude early if the required hours are logged prior to the accumulation of one academic year and candidates may not accelerate through the practicum. School year means the annual period commencing on the first day of September of one calendar year and ending the last day of August of the ensuing calendar year.
