All graduate students enrolled in field experiences that include regular
visits to public schools must process the three clearances mandated by
the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Students will need to be
pro-active in applying for these clearances in a timely fashion to
ensure they are cleared by the Graduate Program in Education office
prior to the first day scheduled in the school.
Students will also need to provide evidence of a recent TB
test. Generally, a TB test within the past year is accepted, but some
districts require the test be within the past three months. Tuberculin
skin testing is offered through the Engle Center for a fee.
