407.10 Student Teachers – Certified

The Board, recognizing its responsibility to improve the quality of teacher training and the contributions student teachers can make to the Ankeny District, encourages and authorizes the Superintendent/designee to arrange for the supervision and training of a reasonable number of student teachers to be available in the District each year. The Superintendent/designee will direct staff to develop procedures for administration of this policy.

Staff members of the District will not be required to supervise student teachers. Teachers new to the District and those having five years or less of teaching experience normally will not be asked to undertake such responsibilities. Generally, teachers will not host student teachers in two consecutive years.

The teacher training institution will be expected to provide liaison personnel to provide general understanding of ethics and requirements of the teaching profession.
