Pre-Student Teachers

MPS requires that college/university placement coordinators communicate directly with school principals to determine placements for all students. Individual students cannot contact principals or teachers on their own.

Once your placement has been secured by your placement coordinator, you must complete the following steps before beginning your placement. The registration form and background check must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to your start date.
