The University of Wisconsin’s EXCEL Center staff, the endorsing administrator, the district designee and the licensure candidate share responsibility in ensuring a successful Add-On Practicum experience.
EXCEL Center Staff
The EXCEL Center staff is involved, at varying degrees of interaction, with the licensure candidate from application through completion of the Add-On Practicum experience.
All candidates seeking an additional license bring a level of experience and expertise to their placement. Participation in the Add-On Licensure Program pre-supposes a manner of professional behavior and personal responsibility consistent with that of an experienced educator.
Licensed School Administrator
The administrator’s responsibility begins with the endorsement of the candidate’s participation in the Add-On Program and continues with a fair and unbiased assessment of the candidate’s performance. S/he lends support to and consults with the teacher candidate, as well as communicates with the EXCEL Center staff, throughout the Add On Practicum experience.
A candidate must obtain clearance from the appropriate District Administrator/Designee in order to ensure adherence with District policy.
