Only requests from colleges, universities and program personnel will be accepted for student teaching and classroom observation. Requests from students via email or phone calls will not be permitted.


Frisco ISD welcomes student teachers during the fall and spring semesters. To request placement for student teaching, please follow the guidelines below.

Instructions for Program Directors, Supervisors and Coordinators:

  1. Review District Guidelines for Student Teacher Placement in FISD.

  2. Submit the District Criminal Background Check. Placements will not be made until a background check has been submitted and cleared.

  3. All prospective student teachers seeking placement in FISD are required to complete and submit a Student Placement Application form. Once completed, forward your application to your program supervisor to be reviewed, signed and submitted.

    SPECIAL NOTE: When completing your application, PLEASE designate a contact person. Multiple contacts increase the chances of miscommunications and can cause untimely delays in accommodating requests. Please do not submit request until after background check has been completed.

  4. The application should be submitted by the program supervisor to:

  5. FISD Human Resource Services Department

    via email to

    or fax to 469.633.6001

  6. Program applications, if available, may also be included with requests; however, only requests using the FISD application will be processed.

  7. Placement availability is limited, therefore, we ask placement requests be made as soon as possible. It would be extremely helpful to have all requests for student teachers submitted at one time to allow us the opportunity to secure appropriate placements for each student.

  8. Share this information with other members of your program as well as with instructors and professors who may be assigning course requirements.
