It is expected that all absences will be made up, regardless of the reason. Students are responsible for making up the day(s) within or after the student teaching experience. If there are questions concerning this, please speak with the university supervisor.
It is the responsibility of student teachers to report all absences to the cooperating teacher and university supervisor prior to the start of the school day in which the student will be absent.If a student teacher must be absent for an extended amount of time (one week), it is the responsibility of the student teacher to report the plan of long-term absence to the cooperating teacher and university supervisor at least one week prior to the absence. Examples of this type of absence are planned surgery, study travel, etc. These days must also be made up.
