    Support for Completing Student Teaching, Pre-Student Teaching, and Observation Hours at Octorara Schools

         The Octorara Area School District welcomes individuals who wish to conduct their student teaching, pre-student teaching and/or observation hours in Octorara’s schools. To ensure the safety and security of staff and students, all requests must come through and be approved by the teaching candidate’s college/university. Prospective candidates may not contact individual teachers directly prior to this approval process. Please have the college/university representative (education department, field placement office, college advisor, or professor) contact Dr. Steven Leever, Superintendent, to process this request at sleever@octorara.org  The request should include:

    1. College/university student’s name and e-mail contact,
    2. Total hours required,
    3. Start and ending date when the student teaching, pre-student teaching, and/or observation hours can occur,
    4. Level (elementary, middle, high school) and/or subject you are requesting; and,
    5. Other pertinent information related to the requirements of this placement.

         Once the request is approved, the college/university student may utilize the teacher’s e-mail address to set up dates and times for the student teaching, pre-student teaching, and/or observation. 

         The Octorara Area School District looks forward to working with prospective educators to maximize students’ opportunities for success.
