  • Student Teacher Placement

    The fall 2019 placement window is from March 1, 2019 through April 5, 2019.

    The Office of Professional Learning is working in conjunction with Human Resources to optimize the learning experiences for student teachers in the district.  Once a student teacher has a completed student teacher application on file, CCSD will place the student teacher applicant with a highly qualified cooperating teacher that personifies CCSD's mission, vision and values.

  • Background Check

    During our placement process, HR will send the student teacher an email regarding our CBI/FBI background check instructions. There will be a charge of $39.50 due at the time of fingerprinting.

    Once the background check is completed, HR will notify the student teacher.  At no time can the student teacher begin student teaching until HR has cleared him/her to work!

  • Mandatory Student Teacher Orientation

    Once HR has completed the placement process, the student teacher will be required to attend our mandatory student teacher orientation.  HR will communicate the date and time of this orientation.  HR will not allow the student teacher to complete the District's student teach program unless he/she have attended this orientation. 

    Please make sure to check your email regularly. If you need to update your email address, please log-in to your account to update.

  • Guaranteed Screening Interview

    As part of our District's student teaching program, a student teacher is guaranteed a general screening interview with a Cherry Creek Administrator.  HR will send an invitation via email with dates and additional information.

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

    Posted by:

    No. As long as it is strictly observation hours, there is no need to go through the student teacher process. Please contact a school in which you are interested in observing. You can find our school directories on the tab "Our Schools." Please know that it is STRICTLY enforced that you must be with a teacher or administrator at all times.
