Project Class EL Practicum

Rosa Parks Elementary

For Pre-service Bilingual and Spanish-Learning School Psychology Trainees:

The basic structure of CLASS EL combines:

  • Weekly fieldwork at our partnership school, Rosa Parks Elementary
  • A month-long summer immersion in Mexico
  • An ongoing academic year of seminar

The focused practicum, one-half day per week, augments the extensive field experiences of the School Psychology Program. 

During practicum, trainees will provide direct and indirect interventions to improve outcomes for SS-ELs under the supervision of the highly qualified bilingual school psychologist at that school.

Emphasis will be on data-based problem-solving and interventions.

The practicum will also include field trips to model schools that are successful in closing the achievement gap for Latino and SSEL students.

Rosa Parks Elementary is a member of the City Heights Educational Collaborative within San Diego Unified School District.
