Student Teaching Information


  • Student teaching placements must be coordinated through D300 Central Office, not through schools.  Please do not, under any circumstances, reach out directly to teachers or building administration to coordinate a placement as this both circumvents and complicates our established process; we appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Please be aware that we will not confirm any placements that have been independently arranged- we will instead place the student teacher with an alternate cooperating teacher.
  • Student teaching placement requests and related placement materials should be directed to After submitting a request to this e-mail address, you will receive a response confirming receipt of the request.  Please allow at least two weeks before reaching out for a status update on your placement request.
  • Please note the following deadlines for submission of placement requests:
  1. Fall Semester: April 15th  
  2. Spring Semester: October 15th
  • If you are seeking to coordinate observation and/or practicum hours, please reach out directly to administration at one of our 26 schools.  The volume of requests received at the district-level for observation and/or practicum requests is too great to handle and school administration is also better suited to coordinate observation hours. If you have a request for a linked practicum/student teaching placement (where the student teacher must be placed with the same cooperating teacher for both the practicum and student teaching placement), please reach out to
