Student Teaching and Internships

The Board authorizes the district to provide field experiences in teacher education to student teachers participating in teacher education programs.

Student teachers shall be placed with experienced teachers of demonstrated competence. While no staff members will be required to supervise student teachers, it is felt that professionally interested teachers will volunteer to do so from time to time. Teachers new to the district and those having three years or less of teaching experience normally will not be asked to undertake such responsibilities. Any compensation received by the Board shall be paid to the supervising teacher, and, if set forth in an agreement, to the student teacher.

The duties and responsibilities of the student teacher shall be determined by mutual agreement between the district and an authorized representative of the college.

For the duration of the field experience, the student teacher shall be deemed an employee of the district for the purpose of worker’s compensation and liability insurance as provided for other employees.
