    Student Teaching Information

    All placements, including student teaching, practicum, and observation hours must be coordinated through District 300 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 circumvent 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.

    To apply for student teaching/internship placements, please click here. After submitting a request, 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.

    Student teaching placement communication and related placement materials should be directed to Student Teaching by emailing   

    Please note the following deadlines for submission of student teaching/internships and linked practicum requests:

    • Fall Semester: April 15th
    • Spring Semester: October 15th

    If you are seeking to coordinate observation and/or practicum hours, please click here. 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 Student Teaching by emailing
