Student Teaching Applications and Forms


Teacher Candidates should consult with their advisors to assure that courses are appropriately chosen to enhance the student teaching experience without detracting from it. Qualified students are required to attend a Student Teaching Application Meeting one semester preceding the term they expect to student teach. This meeting is held each Fall and Spring Semester for students who have been cleared by their department chair to student teach. The specific dates are published via print and digital media mechanisms. Students who do not meet application deadlines must reapply the following semester.

Chicago Public Schools Student Teacher Registration Process:


CPS - When is Each Item Due?

All three items must be completed within our 90-day registration window (April 1 – June 30). Results outside of this window will not be accepted. TB Test and Criminal Background Check should be completed first! Once completed, you will go on-line and complete the CPS Student Teacher Registration Process. Remember, you will be required to upload your TB Test results to your on-line registration profile, as well as enter fingerprint information from your Accurate Biometrics fingerprinting receipt. You won’t be able to complete the on-line registration profile without entering the TB and fingerprint information unless you are a current CPS Employee.

CPS - How Do I Submit My Hard – Copy Forms?

The CPS Student Teaching Program no longer accepts hard-copy forms of your TB Test Results and/or Accurate Biometrics Receipt. This information should be entered in the CPS on-line STUDENT TEACHER registration profile.

CPS - How Will I Know if I am Approved?

Upon successful completion of the on-line registration profile, TB test and criminal background check, you will receive a Report to Service email from the CPS Student Teaching Program. Please print and be prepared to present the day you report to your student teaching assignment within CPS.
