college/university PRACTICUM/ intern STUDENTs
North East works with numerous accredited universities and colleges in the placement of practicum and intern students. The requirements of these placements are typically long term in nature. Students who wish to complete their course work with North East complete the following procedures:
- 1. Submit an online student application. Once the application is submitted a criminal history background check will be completed. All backgrounds must be approved prior to working with students.
- 2. Contact The University Coordinator to submit an official request in writing to the Human Resources Specialist of Staff Development as well as the corresponding NEISD department coordinator. The request should list details of your course requirements and may be emailed, faxed or mailed on the institution's official letterhead.
- 3. Attend a Student Teacher/Intern Orientation prior to working with students if requesting mor than 120 hours. Orientations will be scheduled after the department coordinator has approved the request and a criminal history background check has been completed and approved.
