When will placements be confirmed?
Following the submission of a Field Experience Request Form, the specified school district is contacted. Each school district has a designated contact person with whom we work.
The contact person makes the necessary arrangements for field placement through school personnel and notifies VOSS of approval or denial of the request. VOSS, in turn, informs the instructor or candidate of the status of his/her request.
Sometimes it can take weeks for a request to be processed. If the initial request is not approved, the process is reinstated, involving alternative school districts, until an appropriate placement is secured.
