College of Education COVID-19 Student FAQ

COVID-19 message from Dean Easton-Brooks

We know that you all have many questions about how things are going to work regarding your classes, practicums, and internships. We are currently working with our partner school districts, the Nevada Department of Education, NSHE, and the university on a plan to address the needs of our students and faculty. Please rest assured that your safety, your educational continuity, and the safety of those with whom you work are our top priorities. Below are some FAQs to answer what we know right now.

College of Education COVID-19 FAQs

  • What should students do about teacher education internships?

    Spring 2020: Student Teaching Interns:

    All student teaching interns have been sent specific information regarding the part they will play in remote instruction through WebCampus. If you are a Spring 2020 student teaching intern, please check WebCampus for updates.

    Fall 2021 Student Teaching Interns:

    Please continue to plan to student teach in the Fall. We will reach out to you with your placement information later this semester and over the Summer once they have been finalized. Your patience is greatly appreciated as the COVID-19 situation has interrupted normal placement timelines. Please rest assured that at this point, you will begin your student teaching internships when school resumes at school districts in the Fall and we will be reaching out with additional information.

    Teacher Education Practicum students:

    Please contact your instructor as they have been in contact with your placement school sites and/or host teachers and will have information for you regarding how to proceed.

  • What should students do about HDFS internships?

    Students enrolled in HDFS internship* and practicum courses (including HDFS 231 and 429) have been removed from on-site placements and should work with their respective instructors to engage in remote activity only, typically via Canvas. (*Interns may be allowed to work remotely for their internship site, however they also have the opportunity to supplement with online activities at Jenna Dewar’s direction along with the interns who are not able to continue remote work for original placement sites.)

  • What should be done about College of Education advising appointments?

    Academic advisors remain available remotely and are eager to support your course planning and upcoming enrollment in summer and fall classes. If you already have an appointment scheduled, the advisor with whom you are scheduled to meet will be reaching out to you to discuss your preference to conduct the appointment virtually or via phone. If you would like to schedule an appointment, you may reach out to your advisor via email or to the Advisement Office at or (775) 784-4298. Please include your name, NSHE ID number, major/minor, and preferred return contact email address/phone number.

  • Updates on Summer and Fall enrollment

    Summer and Fall enrollment appointments are proceeding as planned. More information regarding enrollment can be found on the University’s Admission and Records webpage.

  • Is freshman group advising still available?

    Advising will be conducting freshman group advising remotely on the same timeline as planned. We will be working to ensure that everything we know to be of utmost importance to our freshman cohort with regard to academic planning will be included and that you will have opportunity to engage with one another and with academic advisors as well. Please continue to pay attention to your email (as listed in your MyNevada account) in the coming days and weeks for more instruction and information.

  • Are the College of Education facilities available for use?

    No. The William Raggio Building and the Learning Resource Center have been closed and are not available to students in accordance with Governor Sisolak's 30-day closer orders.
