- Places the candidate in an elementary, middle, or high school on a full-time basis from August to June during the academic year.
- Pays each candidate a stipend while working in the specified school.
- Pairs the candidate with a highly qualified mentor classroom teacher who serves as a clinical educator and an instructional coach who provides ongoing support.
