Local school districts require candidates undertaking pre-practicum experiences to undergo a criminal history offender information (CORI) check and a district may determine that a candidate is ineligible for placement based on the outcome of the CORI check.
Any candidate who is refused a placement by a district as a result of his/her CORI check is solely responsible for finding his or her own placement which, in the sole discretion of the College, meets the academic requirements of the program.
Students must determine, in light of other personal or professional obligations, if they can meet the expectations set forth above in order to successfully complete the fieldwork requirements and hence the successful completion of the program.
