Clinical or Student Teaching
The Fort Worth Independent School District welcomes the opportunity to assist, support, and nurture student teachers across our 143 campuses. The District strives to place strong mentors with student teachers so they can learn and develop through positive experiences. The ultimate goal is to develop strong teacher candidates who support the mission and vision of the District, and who, at the end of their successful student teaching experience, can secure a full-time teaching position in FWISD.
Requests for clinical (student) teaching placement must be made by your university or ACP program. University students or Alternative Certification Programs (ACP) candidates eligible for student (clinical) teaching should complete this application.
