Confidential K-12 School & Student information
Welcome back from practicum. As you are aware, the security of data and the protection of privacy are important facets of teacher professionalism.
Following completion of a practicum, all confidential K-12 school and student information that has been collected over the practicum (e.g., student work and grade sheets) should be returned to the school with any remaining materials securely disposed of (i.e., shredded) upon your return to Brock.
If there is practica-related material that you have permission from your associate teacher to retain in order to showcase your work in a practicum (i.e., for the purposes of building a professional portfolio), it is very important that you black out any personal information that would identify students or school personnel.
In terms of confidentiality, teacher candidates are reminded that in conversations with others, except as appropriate, they should avoid disclosing identifying information about the students and school personnel they have worked with.
