The School of Education assumes responsibility for:
Securing appropriate placements with qualified professionals for our students.
Providing students with information about their placement site (travel directions, etc).
Providing a University Transportation System for students who need transportation to the field.
The University Transportation System involves university-sponsored buses and vans. These buses run routes from SU to schools where School of Education students have field placements. Visit the Bus Information Page to learn more about arranging transportation for your placement.
The SU student is responsible for:
Being on time to field placements and/or university transportation route times.
Reviewing the transportation choices available and making his/her own arrangements for transportation.
Students may choose between:
Taking university-provided transportation
Making her/his own arrangements. (This includes using personal vehicles, walking, biking, taking the Centro bus, paying for a taxi, etc.)
We do advise that students have access to a vehicle during the semester in which they student teach. Syracuse University’s policy regarding the use of personal vehicles is that they should be used only on a voluntary basis. The owners/drivers must provide their own insurance coverage; all student participants choosing to ride or transport others in a private automobile do so voluntarily and at their own risk.
The University does not provide any insurance and does not assume any liability for students making their own transportation arrangements. Students opting to make their own arrangements are expected to assume financial responsibility for getting to and from their assigned school/agency.
