Student Teaching is the capstone experience of the educational program. It is designed to provide instructional and leadership opportunities for preservice teachers, opportunities that prepare educators to be decison-makers. They also enhance community partnerships through standard-setting programs that promote teaching, learning, and human development. All of these elements are reflected in the College of Education's mission statement and conceptual framework.
Alpha Delta State of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International is pleased to offer financial assistance to selected students who are engaged in the preservice teaching experience.

If you are taking a course which requires field work, or student teaching, you are REQUIRED to have both a current BCI and FBI clearance. This is a mandated requirement from the school districts.
You may NOT take expired documents to your field placement or student teaching sites.
Do not wait until the start of the semester; please handle this immediately so your paperwork is ready for the start of the semester. The state department is saying that it takes 30 days to process. If something shows up on your record, even if it has been expunged, it will take longer to process.
Always request a copy for your own records. You will have to have a copy with you to present to the school district(s) you are assigned to. You do not need to send a copy to the COE or Office of Student Teaching and Field; it is your responsibility to manage your documents.
If you do not have the required documents ready for when your field course or student teaching starts, you may not be able to complete the requirements of the course. The COE and/or Office of Student Teaching cannot waive this requirement and give you permission to start at the school. Once again, this is a mandated district policy.
