The Field Placement Office at CSU Channel Islands (CI) places student observers and teacher candidates in Ventura, Santa Barbara and other surrounding counties. To ensure that they have an enriching experience with highly qualified cooperating teachers, we identify schools that embrace the University’s Vision statement and the requirements of each credential program. We strive to identify schools with linguistic and diverse classrooms to expand our students learning experiences that will facilitate their becoming successful teachers. It is the responsibility of the Field Placement Office to select appropriate school sites and cooperating teachers. At this time we offer two different types of placements, traditional and co-teaching, for Multiple Subject and Education Specialist Program.
