Adhering to the public health approach of adopting social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person field work education has been suspended through the April 17. Field Education will continue remotely until the final day of field, April 17. Field Liaisons will remain available for communication with all students and Field Instructors to support student remote learning plans which are expected to be in effect during this time. It is important to stay engaged with your Field Instructor, as possible, and your Field Liaison in this regard.
Please make use of the Field Education Remote Learning Resources webpage and the School Documents page in Sonia for additional remote learning opportunities, as needed, informing your Field Liaison and Field Instructor of the opportunities you have accessed.
The GSSWSR is committed to working with students, Field Liaisons, and field agencies to develop the most appropriate response in supporting student completion of field and to ensuring that the plans that are being put in place are sufficient to keep students on track with their timelines. We appreciate your efforts as we all work together toward this goal.
