Message from Dr. Dunlap

GREETINGS AND WELCOME TO THE ELPS 688 ON-SITE ADMINISTRATOR PAGE. I AM JODY DUNLAP, CHAIR OF THE EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND POLICY STUDIES DEPARTMENT HERE AT CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, NORTHRIDGE.

WE COMMEND YOU FOR HAVING A CANDIDATE ON YOUR STAFF WHO IS IN THE PROCESS OF COMPLETING HIS/HER MASTERS DEGREE AND PRELIMINARY CREDENTIAL IN EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION. ON BEHALF OF THE ELPS DEPARTMENT, THANK YOU FOR ACCEPTING THE RESPONSIBILITY TO SERVE AS THE CANDIDATE’S SITE SUPERVISOR.

THERE ARE CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS RELATED TO THE FIELDWORK COURSE. THE CANDIDATE IS AWARE OF THESE REQUIREMENTS AND HAS BEEN ASKED TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU. WE ASK THAT YOU BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE RESPONSIBILITIES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR ROLE.

DURING THE FIRST SEMESTER OF A FIVE SEMESTER PROGRAM THE CANDIDATE IS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A SELF ASSESSMENT BASED ON THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CONTENT AND PROGRAM EXPECTIONS. THE CANDIDATE IS ASKED TO REVIEW THE COMPLETED SELF ASSESSMENT WITH YOU AND ASK FOR YOUR INPUT AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THOSE AREAS THAT THE CANDIDATE HAS IDENTIFIED AS NEEDS TO IMPROVE.
ONCE THE REVIEW HAS BEEN COMPLETED THEN IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE CANDIDATE WILL WORK TOWARD MASTERY OF THOSE AREAS UNDER YOUR GUIDANCE AND SUPERVISION.

WE CONSIDER THE FIRST SEMESTER TO BE THE BEGINNING OF THE CANDIDATE’S FIELDWORK EXPERIENCES CULMINATING WITH FORMAL FIELDWORK ENROLLMENT DURING THE FIFTH AND FINAL SEMESTER.

PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING OF THE FIFTH SEMESTER THE CANDIDATE WILL REQUEST YOUR SIGNATURE ON OUR FIELDWORK APPLICATION. YOUR SIGNATURE ON THE APPLICATION INDICATES THAT THE CANDIDATE HAS YOUR SUPPORT IN FINISHING HIS/HER FIELDWORK ACTIVITIES AT YOUR SCHOOL SITE, AGAIN, UNDER YOUR SUPERVISION AND GUIDANCE.

AT THE END OF THE FIFTH SEMESTER, YOU WILL BE PROVIDED ELECTRONICALLY WITH A “FIELDWORK ENTRY/EXIT” FORM, WHICH ASKS YOU TO RATE THE CANDIDATE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SIX STANDARDS ASSOCIATED WITH THEIR FIELDWORK.
EACH CANDIDATE WILL SUBMIT AN ELECTRONIC PORTFOLIO TO THE UNIVERSITY ADVISOR, WHO WILL EVALUATE ITS CONTENTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PROGRAM.

AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS MOST SIGNIFICANT EXPERIENCE FOR ONE OF OUR FUTURE ADMINISTRATORS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, DON’T HESITIATE TO CONTACT THE UNIVERSITY ADVISOR ASSIGNED TO THE CANDIDATE.

Dr. Jody Dunlap
