TWU will strive to grant a student's request concerning a preferred location for their field experience/observation; however, the school districts may have other obligations or other factors may determine your placement. Students will list a first and second choice district on the application, but only complete the background requirements for the first choice district. Each district is unique in what is required to obtain approval for placement.

A direct link to the district’s background requirements is provided during the online application process or available on SharePoint. To print from SharePoint go to https://share.twu.edu, College of Professional Education, Practice-Based Experience/Observation, Observation Background Forms. Click on district, open background, print and 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for specific placement instructions. A substitute is not considered a contract-position by the district; therefore, must follow the general process to obtain placement approval.
