3120.06 Policy Selecting Student Teachers Administrative Interns

The School Board encourages cooperation with state-approved colleges and universities in the training of student teachers and administrative interns, because the public school offers an essential ingredient - direct experience with students and teachers at work in the classroom, but certain safeguards have been found to be necessary for the best interests of all concerned.

The School District has an obligation to aid in the training of prospective professional staff.  The District, subject to the discretion and approval of the Superintendent of Schools, may accept placement of student teachers and interns from certified institutions.

Colleges and universities should first make contact with the Superintendent regarding placement of a student teacher or administrative intern.

The Superintendent shall make the final placement of student teachers or administrative interns.

The Board also authorizes the Superintendent to provide, in cooperation with appropriate colleges and universities, a "field experience" program in order for selected interns to gain first-hand knowledge of and experience in a school environment.

The Superintendent may terminate a teaching program if one (1) or more aspects of the program are not of high quality or meeting District needs or expectations.
