February 4, 2021 - Regular School Board Meeting
C8 - Affiliation Agreement between Clay County District Schools and Grand Canyon University

This agreement is between Clay County District Schools and Grand Canyon University (GCU) for GCU students to participate in internships, practicums, and observations under the direction of a certified educator in Clay County Schools.

Gap Analysis

Without this agreement, interns and pre-interns cannot be placed in Clay County District schools and would thereby prevent potential teacher candidates from choosing Clay to begin their career.

Previous Outcomes

Clay County District Schools currently has agreements with 28 Colleges/Universities, and has previously held an agreement with Grand Canyon University that expired on 12/31/2020.

Expected Outcomes

Placement of interns provides teacher candidates with real-world experiences that better prepares them for the rigors of classroom teaching.  Grand Canyon University is currently requesting the placement of one student.

Strategic Plan Goal

Goal 5: Develop and support great educators, support personnel, and leaders. 

Strategy: 5.1: Recruit, screen, hire, and retain top candidates that reflect the diversity of each school, our district, and community.


That the Clay County School Board approve the agreements between Clay County District Schools and Grand Canyon University.
