Student Teaching

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 Applitrack. 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 Applitrack before a student teacher will be considered for placement:

  • Select Student Teacher Pool on STEP 4 of the online application
  • Personal Information
  • Educational information
  • Resume
  • Cover Letter
  • Respond to questions related to teaching
  • School preferences
  • TeacherFit

Once your application is complete and submitted, Poudre School District will organize all efforts between your university and placement opportunities within PSD schools to determine a specific student teaching placement. Successful completion of the Student Teacher Application does not guarantee placement.


  • You should not contact schools, principals, or teachers about student teaching
  • Respond promptly to any communication you receive from the district
  • Always keep your email contact information current
