  • Placement Window

    The Spring 2023 placement window is open from September 1, 2022 through November 1, 2022.

    The Human Resources department is committed to investing in our student teachers. The Student Teacher Program is designed to optimize the learning experiences of student teachers in the district and provide a comprehensive overview of CCSD’s mission, values, and strategic initiatives. Once a student teacher has completed a student teacher application on file, CCSD will place the student teacher applicant with an approved cooperating teacher.

  • Background Check

    During our placement process, HR will send the student teacher an email regarding our CBI/FBI background check instructions.

    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 them to work!

  • Student Teacher Orientation

    Once HR has completed the placement process, the student teacher will be expected to attend our 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 teaching program unless they 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.

  • Student Teacher Seminars and Trainings

    During each semester, the District will host two Student Teacher Seminar sessions for student teachers. These seminars provide an opportunity to learn more about Cherry Creek School's core values and receive training sessions on relevant topics to continue to build the capacity of our student teachers.
