All teacher education candidates must provide their own liability insurance. Candidates, not the University of West Georgia, are responsible for acts committed while participating in professional field experiences. Keep in mind that financial penalties can be extreme, particularly when public school students are injured as a result of the candidates’ negligent acts or omissions. Terms of the liability insurance policy can be obtained from the Office of Field Based Preparation. Coverage may be obtained through Student Professional Association of Georgia Educators (SPAGE) and/or Georgia Association of Educators (GAE). Information concerning these organizations is available from each department in the College of Education, the Academic Advisement Center, and/or the Office of Field Based Preparation.
