Instructions for Specific Districts

TEA Field Experience Regulations

TEA Regulations require 30 hours of field-based experience for initial licensure candidates prior to clinical teaching.

"§228.35.e.1: For initial certification in the classroom teacher certification class, each EPP shall provide field-based experiences, as defined in §228.2 of this title (relating to Definitions), for a minimum of 30 clock-hours. The field-based experiences must be completed prior to assignment in an internship or clinical teaching."

Status of Field Experiences

The Center for the Professional Development of Teachers (CPDT) works with partner school districts to update field-based experience information. Please contact the CPDT Office with any questions. The availability and mode of field experiences are determined by the individual districts.

CPDT is still waiting for districts to determine if and what they will allow for field experiences, and many are changing their application and approval processes. This information will be updated when it is available. Links to district sites will be live as soon as they confirm their information.
