School Districts


TWU will strive to grant a student’s request concerning a preferred location; however, the school districts may have other obligations or other factors may determine your placement. Students will need to list a first and second choice district on the application but only complete the background requirements for the first choice district.

  • Email - students may request forms to be sent to them electronically by emailing Sharon Masten at  Please include in your email your name, the school district of your choice, course number and your professor. Ms. Masten will advise you as to the requirements once the district has been selected.
  • Office - forms are available from Sharon Masten, Professional Development Center, Stoddard Hall, Room 202C. Due to the high volume of requests for placements during the first few weeks of the semester, appointments will not be necessary; it will be done on first come, first serve basis. It does not take long for the student to be advised. To speed the process, please come with the application complete.

    Out-of-area students or students with a contract-position within a public school district (teacher or paraprofessional but not a substitute) should email for specific placement instructions. Substitutes follow the same guidelines as general students requesting placements.

    All TWU placements go through the Professional Development office to ensure that proper procedures are followed. Students at districts without proper authorization can become a liability for the districts as well as TWU.
