Student Teaching Support Services
Welcome to the Office of Licensure and Field Services Web Page for Cooperating Teachers, Counseling Site Supervisors, and University Supervisors. Here you’ll find guidelines and resources for helping student teachers and counselors meet the benchmarks they’ll need in order to apply for an initial teaching or counseling license.
As of the 2014-15 academic year, OSU College of Education is using the online tool, TaskStream, for tracking assessments. All assessments will be entered by university supervisors and cooperating teachers to TaskStream. However, if you would like to have access to paper copies of the assessments, you may print from any of the links below. If you use a paper form during the assessment, you will then upload the scores to TaskStream. If you have not received your TaskStream login, please contact Kristin Kinman (email@example.com).
There are some common threads across our initial teacher licensure programs. All of our students are required to be formally observed at least six times during their 15 weeks of student teaching. Some of our programs require more than this, and the program handbooks spell this out. School counseling students who do not have a teaching license must be observed three times in a classroom setting.
Please help us to maintain our accreditation database by filling out the Cooperating Teacher Information Sheet, Counseling Site Supervisor Information Sheet, or the University Supervisor information Sheet as they pertain to you.
Mileage Reimbursement Policy 2014-2015
University supervisors wishing to receive reimbursement for travel miles need to submit a mileage reimbursement log to Nell O'Malley within sixty days of completing observations for a term*.
Beginning fall term 2014, supervisors will be reimbursed within a 25-mile radius (Corvallis, Albany, Lebanon, and Philomath) for up to $50 per student per term. For example, if a supervisor visits five local students the maximum reimbursement is $250 per term. Please note that there is now a “not to exceed” (NTE) amount of $50 per student per term. Site visits beyond a 25-mile radius (one-way) will also be reimbursed on a case-by-case basis, and must be pre-approved. Mileage beyond the 25-mile radius will still be calculated using the university mileage chart.
*Per university policy, requests for reimbursement are to be submitted within 60 days after the term has been completed, but no later than the close of the fiscal year in which the travel occurred.
