Student Teaching: Request Placement
Attend a Student Teaching Info Session held in early February during the spring semester prior to the academic year you intend to complete your student teaching experience(s). Your advisor will send you an email notifying you of the day, time and location of the info session. If you do not receive this email notice before January 1st, please contact Melissa Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
If you are a KU School of Education student, make an appointment with your advisor for a graduation check. You should have a graduation check completed before you apply to student teach. Complete all of the required forms presented at the Student Teaching Info Session and turn them into the School of Education Welcome Center (JRP 208) before the specified due date.
All arrangements for student teaching must be made through the Field Experience Office. You may not initiate discussions with school or district personnel about a student teaching assignment. Interference on your part will not only complicate matters; it may result in the district denying your request entirely. You will receive an email when your placement is confirmed with all of the pertinent details included. You should contact your clinical supervisor ASAP to introduce yourself and thank him/her for agreeing to mentor you.
