This developmental project was designed to solve the conflict between the Center for Teacher Education at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and the local public school districts regarding the placement of education students in public school classrooms for field work activities. The conflict arose when one major school district restricted the number of student placements, education faculty withdrew activity assignments to that district, and classroom teachers and education students lost a professional growth opportunity. This project developed a systematic procedure for placing students in field work assignments in an equitable and collaborative manner. The result of this procedure was improved communication between all the public schools in the area and the Center for Teacher Education. Students and classroom teachers are once again collaborating in professional development programs. A recommendation of this project is that the placement procedure developed be used for all Center field work activities. One appendix presents the procedure and the other contains a letter asking for procedure evaluation. (Contains eight references.) (Author)
