Liberty Public Schools is pleased to cooperate with many area colleges and universities in classroom observation and student teaching/internship programs. We feel that these preparatory experiences are extremely important in the "real world" development of future teachers. With this belief as a foundation, the following steps/procedures have been established so that the college students and cooperating LPS teachers can provide the best developmental experience possible.

Classroom Observations: The placement of college students for the purposes of classroom observation is an agreement made by the college/university placement official(s) or instructor(s) and the building level principal. Necessary documentation of this process includes a written document from the college/university-stating the purpose of the observation, requesting placement information of specified individual college students by name, and the duration of the observation which include dates and times. Since this is only an observation and no college students will work directly with LPS students, an FBI or local background check of the college student is not necessary.

Student Teaching/Internships: Initial requests for all student teaching and internship placements are made by college placement officials to Mr. Dee Rosekrans. Student teaching/internship candidates are then required to meet with Mr. Rosekrans so that placement and experience options can be examined. If a suitable placement can be made, Mr. Rosekrans will communicate with building-level administration to secure an appropriate cooperative teacher assignment. The placing college or university is then notified of the placement. Necessary documentation of this process includes a written document from the college/university-stating placement information of specified individual college students by name, college expectations of the experience, and the duration of the experience which includes specified calendar dates. Since college students will be working directly with LPS students, an FBI background check of the college student is required. Arrangements for an FBI background check can be made through the placing college/university or Liberty Public Schools.

The Liberty Public School District is committed to providing the best learning environment possible. This environment includes the continued development of both students and staff. We look forward to continuing our commitment of assisting in the processes that create our teachers of tomorrow.
