Student Teacher and Student Observer Guidelines

  • Georgetown ISD welcomes student teachers during the Fall and Spring semesters. To request placement for student teaching, please follow the guidelines below.


    Student Teachers

    Instructions for Program Directors, Supervisors and Coordinators:

     All prospective student teachers seeking placement in GISD are required to complete and submit a Student Teacher Application labeled Student Teacher 20-21. The application will be available on our website on July 13th, 2020 and it will initiate the background check process.  Placements will not be made until this step has been completed.

    • Contact Rosie Bunik at with your placement requests and requirements.
    • GISD Human Resources will communicate placements as soon as they are confirmed.
    • Students will attend a mandatory Student Teacher Orientation in August or January.
