Become a Lindy Advsior

Become a Lindy Advisor

 The success of the Lindy Scholars Program wouldn’t be possible without the Lindy Advisors, a group of Drexel University students who serve as both tutors and mentors for the middle school Scholars.
On average, Lindy Advisors serve the community between five and eleven hours per week in the following ways:
Tutoring: Lindy Advisors tutor their Scholars twice a week at their Scholars’ elementary school from approximately 2:15pm-4:45pm including travel time. Advisors are assigned to be either a Math Coach or a Literacy Coach and implement curriculum designed by the Lindy Scholars Program while utilizing techniques and methods learned through their on-going training and support. 
Mentoring: Lindy Advisors provide mentorship to their Scholars four Saturdays per term from 9am to 3pm including orientation and debrief time. Advisors spend the day on Drexel’s campus engaging in planned activities that focus on the Three Pillars of Academic Excellence, Character Development and Opportunity and Access. Activities include academic contests, art projects, athletic opportunities, science experiments, character lessons, field trips and much more! 
Benefits for this program may include:

  •  Ongoing training and development to improve your skills as a mentor and tutor
  •  Gaining real-world experiences through transformative and meaningful service opportunities
  •  Building new and life-long relationships
  •  Eligible students can apply their Federal Work Study (FWS) funds toward their position as an Advisor

Reminder to Update Clearances NOW for the next Academic Year!

Deadline for Clearance Submission for Fall 2015 term courses that require any type of field experience including observations, lab practicum, pre-student teaching or student teaching is August 15th.

Please be advised: School districts are no longer accepting screen shots or camera phone images of state required clearances. Clearance copies that have an applicant’s thumb, camera flash, a screen glare or an additional background image are being sent back to the FPO office. The Field Placement Office will require students to submit clear scanned copies of the original clearance documents. This is the only form that districts are accepting from the university.

School of Education Clearances Policy:

Under the direction of The Office of the General Counsel (OGC), all School of Education students, faculty and staff who come into contact with children either through field-based supervision or research experience in school settings must obtain and present to the Field Placement Office (FPO) the following up-to-date (not more than one year old) clearances prior to entering a Pk-12 school setting:

FBI Federal Criminal History Record (Act 114): Information about how to obtain your FBI clearance is available at https://www.pa.cogentid.com/index_pdeNew.htm.  Upon registering for the fingerprint check, you will be assigned a secure registration ID# that you must supply to the Field Placement Office so that we can access your FBI clearance online. You will not be able to access your records online yourself, but you will receive an “unofficial” paper copy of your FBI clearance for your files.  Be sure to process this clearance through the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) NOT the Department of Public Welfare (DPW) or the Department of Banking (DOB).

Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Records Check (Act 34): Request your record through the PATCH system found at https://epatch.state.pa.us/Home.jsp. Be sure to select ‘Volunteer’ under the Reason For Request section. 

Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151): Use this link to access the form: http://www.dhs.state.pa.us/findaform/childabusehistoryclearanceforms/index.htm

Arrest / Conviction Report and Certification Form (Act 24):  Teacher candidates must complete the PDE-6004 form to have on file in the FPO.  Additionally, schools may request candidates to sign a form for their files.  http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/background_checks_%28act_114%29/7493

 Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting Training (Act 31): Teacher candidates must complete the mandated reporter training. Candidates are to print the certificate of completion and forward a copy to the FPO. The online training can be found at Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact The Field Placement Office. 

Thank you,

SoE Field Placement Office
