To begin the process of establishing a supervision contract, you must hold licensure at the LSWA or LMSW level. Once licensed at either of those levels, you may then submit the original Supervision Contract (Form 201), along with a copy of your job description, to the Oklahoma State Board of Licensed Social Workers. We MUST have the original contract with original signatures. Please keep copies for your records. In addition, we will need a copy of the W-4 you signed when you became employed with agency for which you are working. When your contract is approved, you will receive email notification of the approved contract along with the approval letter informing you of your effective start date.
If you are experiencing difficulty defining the "focus of supervision" for page two of the contract, please refer to the following examples. These examples should assist in helping you determine the area of focus for your supervisory experience.
Once your contract has been approved, you may begin accruing hours toward the completion of your supervision. Generally speaking, there are three evaluation periods for which you will need to submit evaluation forms. Evaluation forms are to be submitted at following intervals:
For those seeking clinical licensure, you must complete and submit the following forms for EACH evaluation period within 30 DAYS of completing the evaluation period. Comments MUST be included in all sections. All forms received by this office MUST include original signatures where appropriate.
For those seeking administrative licensure, you must complete submit the same forms for EACH evaluation period within 30 DAYS of completing the evaluation period as noted above. The only difference is that you will complete FORM 205 instead of FORM 204.
Termination of Supervision occurs for a variety of reasons, change of jobs, relocation, completion of the required number of hours, etc. If you are terminating supervision for any reason, you will need to complete and submit FORM 208 within 30 days of the termination, along with evaluation forms and supervision log for that evaluation period.
