3. A day of shadowing is a full workday which may mean six to eight hours. The minimum amount of time necessary to fulfill the requirements of the day is five hours.

4. You will be exempt from classes in order to participate in this activity.

5. If an emergency situation arises with you and/or your sponsor (example: illness, unexpected meeting), you must make arrangements to reschedule the event on a Saturday or a day when school is not in session.

Procedures

1. Please fill out the shadowing form completely. Make sure to include all names, addresses, zip codes, signatures, emails, etc. The form will be returned to you if it is not complete or illegible.

2. If you are shadowing someone at the Cleveland Clinic, please ask him or her for the location code – it is part of the mailing address. Otherwise, the letter and evaluation form might not make it to your sponsor on time.

3. A confirmation letter and evaluation form is sent to your sponsor after you turn in the permission form on March 28, 2017. This letter gives the sponsor guidelines for the day. The evaluation form completed by your sponsor will be kept in your guidance file.

4. If you change your shadowing sponsor, please let Mrs.Favret know in the Guidance Office.  A new permission form needs to be completed and turned into the guidance office for your new sponsor.

5. Sponsors will be contacted on the day of shadowing by Beaumont faculty members.

6. Don’t wait – contact your sponsor now. See Mrs Favret in the Guidance Department if you are having difficulty.

7. After your shadowing experience, you will be asked to complete a shadowing report. The junior shadowing requirement is fulfilled when the guidance department receives the evaluation from your sponsor and when you complete and turn in your shadowing report. The deadline for turning in the evaluation and shadowing report to your homeroom teacher is Tuesday, May 23, 2017.
