Attendance and Tardiness

It is the responsibility of teacher candidates to display professional behavior by avoiding absences and tardiness.  Teacher candidates will follow the calendar schedule and the daily faculty schedule of the school district in which they are placed, and not the SPSU calendar.  When an absence or tardiness is unavoidable, it is the teacher candidate's responsibility to notify their mentor teacher.  Frequent unexcused absences or tardiness may result in the candidate being removed from the apprentice assignment, in which case, the candidate will be required to repeat the apprenticeship the following semester.
