ELPS 688 FIELDWORK ON-SITE SUPERVISOR/ADMINISTRATOR
Message from Dr. Reynolds
Greetings and welcome to the ELPS 688 On-Site Administrator Webpage. I am Bronte Reynolds, Chair for the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Department 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 knows these requirements and has been asked to share them with you. We ask that you become familiar with the responsibilities associated with your role.
The candidate is required to complete a fieldwork application that must be signed by you, indicating your willingness to assume the responsibilities of the site supervisor and giving your support for the candidate’s enrollment in fieldwork.
During the semester, the candidate, the site supervisor, and the university advisor will meet to discuss the candidate’s progress. There is a variety of options for conducting this meeting, including conference call, e-conferencing, Webcam conferencing, or face-to-face conferencing when practical. See our Webpage for further information on this.
At the end of the semester, you will be provided electronically with a “Fieldwork Entry/Exit” form, which asks you to rate the candidate’s performance related to the Six Standards associated with their fieldwork. Also, 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 hesitate to contact the university advisor assigned to the candidate.
Dr. Bronte Reynolds
ELPS Department Chairperson
