Attendance Policies

Unless otherwise arranged, students serve eight-hour business days following the agency’s regular schedule. Lunch should be taken at the same time and increments as employees and does not count toward the eight-hour daily service requirement. Regular attendance and punctuality are expected even when the student is serving remotely. Days of service are officially recorded at the end of each semester on the final evaluation form and a tracking log.

Students are allowed the equivalent of 2 weeks of sick leave per academic year (first-year students are entitled to 4 days and second-year students to 6) that do not need to be made up. Absences beyond this must typically be made up. Some students may be approved in advance for additional accommodations based upon circumstance.

Unless otherwise arranged, students are not expected to be in a field placement during university break periods; if mutually agreeable, students may rearrange break periods or makeup absences during these periods. Before the break, students are expected to arrange for continuity of care for all clients and projects. If questions arise related to attendance or scheduling, please consult the assigned UCB Field Consultant.

*If you are celebrating the second day of Rosh Hashanah, please talk with your field instructor or student to set a new start date.

Forms

All of the Field Education forms are now electronic (except for the PPSC evaluation form--see below for the link). Students and field instructors will be emailed personalized links to complete and submit the learning agreement, first-semester evaluation, and final evaluation forms. The electronic forms will also allow students and field instructors to save drafts of each form. For samples of completed forms, see below. Please email your assigned Field Consultant if you have questions.

Pupil Personnel Services Credential (PPSC) Students

Students who are pursuing the PPSC must also complete an additional evaluation. These are due on the same day as the respective concentration final evaluations.
