LDA – Student Teaching and Internships

The School Board recognizes the student teacher program as in important aspect of a future teacher’s education. Therefore, the Board will cooperate with institutions of higher education in training student teachers.

All persons involved in this program must recognize that the first and primary responsibility of the district is to the students within its schools. If at any time a student teacher becomes unacceptable, the district reserves the right to refuse that student teacher further teaching experience within the district.

Student teachers who work in the school district shall be accepted only after approval of the Superintendent or designee and the Principal of the building in which the person is to teach.

Student teachers are restricted to not more than three non-consecutive days of substitute teaching, except in emergency situations.
Building principals have the final determination and approval of what classroom and cooperating teacher student teachers are placed with.
