Clinical Practice Partnership Schools

The Council on the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), Standard 2 definition of clinical partnerships and practice states that, "The provider ensures that effective partnerships and high-quality clinical practice are central to preparation so that candidates develop the knowledge, skills, and professional dispositions necessary to demonstrate positive impact on all P-12 students' learning and development."

The New York State Education Department Clinical Practice Work Group recommends that educator preparation programs, in collaboration with the applicable entity(ies), including but not limited to schools, school districts/LEAs, school networks, and community-based organizations, shall establish, maintain, and review meaningful partnerships through memoranda of understanding or similar collaborative agreements for the purpose of systematically improving the preparation of teachers and the teaching and learning for all involved in collaborative clinical experiences. (From NYSED CPWG recommendations)
