New Information for FacultyPracticum Placement Policy and Procedure (Updated October 20, 2011)
It is the responsibility of the faculty member to find a clinical instructor (teacher) for practicum work with our RIC students. Please do not approach clinical instructors that you do not know and do not make cold calls to anyone.
Keep the Principal informed about your request for using a clinical instructor for practicum at their school. (Special Note-Exception- Lincoln and Middletown require that OPP make the official request for practicum. Do not contact Principals in these two districts.)
After finding appropriate clinical instructors, make a formal request on Ricplacements.org (Special Note: East Greenwich, North Providence, and North Smithfield require the names of students prior to the first day of the practicum/observation. Warwick is requiring the names of the students in practicum with the formal request on ricplacements.org)
You must await a formal approval/denial from all districts. This could take two weeks or more for district paperwork. If you do not receive an email response from OPP with an approval/denial within 3-weeks, send an email inquiry to OPP.
Be sure to follow BCI district procedures.
