Seidel School of Education Clinical Practice Ongoing Updates

Salisbury University’s Seidel School of Education has collaborated all summer long with its P-12 Professional Development School partners and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) regarding varying back to school plans due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Considerations are being made to allow teacher candidates and interns to complete course outcomes and graduation requirements. All stakeholders involved in teacher preparation will be informed of any changes in clinical practice as soon as possible.

Full-time Interns will complete the Google for Education “Certified Educator" Level One course this summer. This is not a graduation requirement, but since many of our PDS partners are using Google Classroom for online instruction, this certification will increase the interns’ abilities to co-teach in online environments.

The mission of the RPDS is to provide a learning community to improve practice and enhance student achievement in Pre-K-12 public schools. The RPDS provides professional development for classroom teachers and Salisbury University faculty. The Seidel School of Education partners with seven counties to provide preparation for prospective teachers enrolled in early childhood, elementary, secondary and P-12 programs in physical education, music, ESOL and TESOL at Salisbury University.
