CalTeach field placements take place primarily in East Bay schools and there are a number of ways students can get to and from their school site. Some schools are within easy walking distance of UC Berkeley. Other locations are accessible by bike or public transit. To learn more about field placement transportation options, feel free to contact our Student Services Coordinator.
Cal Teach provides students enrolled in EDUC 131AC with the opportunity to request financial reimbursement for BART transportation costs incurred while traveling to and from their field placement locations. To request reimbursement, please complete the form linked below and gather the required supporting receipts, then please drop them off in 30 EVANS (Cal Teach ARC) with a CalTeach Peer Advisor. Reimbursement requests may be submitted by the end of the semester after you have completed all your travel.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their submission is complete. All trips should begin and end in Berkeley. Lyft/Uber (or similar) usage will not be reimbursed unless pre-approved by the department.
