Request To Host A Specific Teacher Candidate

It is important to note that a request does not guarantee that we will be able to place the teacher candidate in your classroom. 

There are a variety of factors that must be reviewed before a placement can be confirmed.

These factors include but are not limited to certification requirements, the timing of the request, the teacher candidate's previous experiences and district approval.

You will be notified if the placement has been approved.
