Description: This program was well received in its first year of implementation. This donor gifting assists student teachers with the financial burden associated with public school student teaching placement in schools with distances greater than 70 miles round trip. Gas gift cards (in $50 increments) are given to qualifying students. Those students (drivers) that are placed in schools 70 – 99 miles round trip from campus receive 1 gas gift card as a donor gift to be used during their 6-week public school student teaching session to help defray some of their fuel costs. Those students (drivers) that are placed in schools 100 or more miles round trip from campus receive 2 gas gift cards. If students take turns car-pooling, the drivers are responsible for the dividing the funds fairly. A cost estimate based on the past 2017-18 school year is $3000.
