COE Name Badges

A UWG College of Education name badge MUST be visible on your body at all times when you are at your school site. Administrators have been notified that candidates/interns should not be allowed on school property without the College of Education name badge. If you have misplaced your badge or if you are a first semester teacher candidate, you will need to acquire a badge from Auxiliary Services (the round building in the center of the campus). Your UWG ID badge will not be accepted as identification in the schools.
