Placement Policies

The Field Placement Office uses student addresses to secure placements that are within a reasonable distance from the address noted on RU Access. Below you will find a map that outlines our placement boundaries. If a student lives outside the boundaries, they should expect to travel within the boundaries for their observation and student teaching placements.

It is against policy for students to secure their own placements or "cold call" schools. Only hours at a placement secured by the Field Placement Office will count toward program and certification requirements.

For more informtion on policies and procedures specifically related to student teaching, please refer to the Student Teaching Handbook
