Intervention

When Problems Arise

When problems arise for the Georgia Southern teacher candidate in the field experience setting, the school contact person should be informed, as should the University Supervisor or instructor of record. Should the University Supervisor or instructor of record be unavailable, the Department Chair or Director of Field Experiences and Clinical Practice should be contacted.
