TWU will strive to grant a student's request concerning a preferred location for their student teaching experience; however, the school districts may have other obligations or other factors that may determine your placement. Students will need to include a first and second choice district, selected from the following list, on their online student teaching application.

List of ISD Choices for Student Teacher Placements:  *

Allen Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Lewisville
Argyle Farmersville Little Elm 
Aubrey Fort Worth Mansfield
Birdville     Frisco McKinney 
Burleson Gainesville Mesquite
Carrollton Farmers Branch Garland Northwest
Celina  Grand Prairie Our Lady of Victory Catholic School (Fort Worth)

*list subject to change- Background checks submitted for observation may not be used for student teaching.

Students must attend one of the student teaching enrollment meetings prior to submitting their background check for student teaching.  All of the above districts require a background check for student teaching. Instructions for accessing TWU Blackboard to obtain a copy of the district's background form, an instruction sheet for submitting an online background check, or a combination of the two, will be provided during the Student Teacher Enrollment Mettings. ISD background forms and ISD computer generated confirmation of an online background check must be submitted to the Professional Development Center with all other student teaching paperwork, by the student teaching application deadline.
