Student Teacher/Intern FAQ

​I am an intern, not a student teacher.  What is the process to do an internship with CCSD?

This depends on what type of internship you are seeking: click here to be routed to the Internship information page. 

I am looking to complete observation hours.  Do I need to go through the student teaching process?

Can I contact CCSD schools directly to inquire about placement?

Yes, as long as you have already completed your online Student Teaching Application.  The main phone numbers for all of our schools can be found on our website.

What do I need to submit to become a student teaching applicant?

All of the information needed to answer this question can be found on our Student Teaching information page.

Who do I contact if I have questions that were not answered by the website information?

Because CCSD receives hundreds of applications for student teaching, please read ALL the information provided before contacting HR.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
