Student teacher candidates (individuals enrolled in a teacher preparation program who are attempting to secure their culminating field experience) are required to submit a Poudre School District Student Teacher application in Recruit&Hire.
Requests to student teach in the district are only accepted from a sponsoring university/college. Student teachers are asked not to contact individual teachers or building administrators to obtain information for a student teaching placement.
The following information must be submitted to PSD through Recruit&Hire before a student teacher will be considered for placement:
- Select Student Teacher Pool
- Personal Information
- Educational information
- Cover Letter
- Respond to questions related to teaching
- School preferences
Once an application is complete and submitted, PSD coordinates with the student teacher's university and placement opportunities within PSD schools to determine specific placement. Note: Successful completion of the Student Teacher Application does not guarantee placement.
Student teacher applicants should remember to:
- NOT contact schools, principals, or teachers about student teaching
- Respond promptly to communication from the district
- Always keep your email contact information current
