ISD choices for student teaching
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 the placement. Students will need to include a first and second choice district, selected from the following list*, on their online student teaching application.

*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 Meetings. ISD background forms and ISD computer generated confirmation of an online background check must be submitted to the Office of Clinical Practices with all other student teaching paperwork, by the student teaching application deadline.
