Welcome to Field Services!

You have reached a very exciting part of the program! Clinical practice fieldwork applies to all credential candidates regardless of pathway. This experience grants an opportunity for credential candidates to apply all that was learned in coursework and utilize current teaching-learning research to create well-functioning classroom environments, where children in TK-12 grade classrooms interact and learn the state-adopted academic standards. Clinical practice is set up in such a way that credential candidates (employed and non-employed) learn from experienced educators, are evaluated against the TPEs, and receive the support and guidance they need to become effective educators.

To facilitate a successful clinical practice experience, the Office of Field Services provides support to all Student Teachers/Teacher Candidates (ST), Cooperating Teachers (CT), and University Supervisors (US) engaged in Stanislaus State credential programs.

We are excited to assist and guide you through this journey. Please use the information and links below to learn more about our programs and fieldwork guidelines.
