Welcome to the Dartmouth Public Schools!
 
 
Thank you for choosing Dartmouth to do your student observation and student teaching practicums! 


On behalf of the Dartmouth Public Schools, we would like to thank you for making a career in Education your Number 1 choice!  As a teacher, you will have a major role in impacting our students' lives, and you will truly make a difference!


In order for you to do your student observations and student teaching, we will need the following information:


1.  Written documentation on college letterhead stating that you need to do observations/student teaching.  Please include your choice of:  school, grade, and subject (if applicable).

2.  Your contact information as well as your availability.  For example, you are available: MWF from 9 am to 12 noon.

3.  You will need to complete a criminal background check.  Please click
here for the CORI form.

4.  You will need to complete Fingerprinting. Please click here for the Fingerprinting information.

5.  Once you have passed the CORI check, your request will then be reviewed and approved by the Assistant
     Superintendent, and then forwarded to the appropriate school.

6.  You will be contacted by the school directly for a brief meeting before placement.  This is to ensure a perfect match between you and the supervising teacher.

7.  You will be notified about the status of your placement.


Please note: 

You will not be able to start your observations/student teaching until you have passed a CORI check, fingerprinted, and your placement has been approved by the Assistant Superintendent as well as the school.  Also note that the whole process, from the CORI check to finding a placement, does take some time.  Please submit your request as soon as possible.  We do expedite all requests as quickly as possible, but we have no control over getting CORI results.

Please submit all appropriate documentation to:
