The UWSP student teacher policy in regard to distance from our campus: The School of Education has a set radius within which student teachers are assigned. I think it’s approximately 60 miles in any direction. Students who choose to go outside the radius pay a fee ($600-800) to enable UWSP to pay for supervision by someone other than a regular faculty member. A retired local music educator has been appointed as adjunct faculty, and she supervises these students. In the past we found music education faculty from other campuses and paid them to supervise, but this often resulted in difficulties with scheduling, etc. The students are required to come back to Stevens Point for the student teaching seminar, but this only occurs 3 days each semester.
