Student Teachers and Interns

Student Teacher & Intern Information

Welcome to Cabarrus County Schools; we love hosting our student teachers and interns.  Here are important facts you need to know to before you enter our schools.  
      Classroom placements for Student Teachers or Student Interns should be directed to Leslie Griffin
      Placements for School Counselors must be directed to John Basilice.
      Placements for Social Workers must be directed to Amy Jewell.
      Placements for Athletic Trainers must be directed to Leslie Griffin and Bryan Tyson.
Please know all interns and student teachers will be required to follow district protocols regarding COVID-19.
Student teachers and student interns are required to complete the following components before reporting to their assigned schools or classrooms:

1. Student Teacher/Intern Orientation - You must attend an Orientation Session to begin the process.   These sessions are only for student teachers/interns who have a confirmed placement in Cabarrus County Schools.  These orientations will be scheduled through Human Resources. Please contact Leslie Griffin  if you have questions. 
2. Drug Test - We will discuss how this is accomplished at the Orientation Session. 

3. Background Check-Student teachers will be emailed a link to the background check system.  This link will expire, so it is imperative that it be completed as soon as possible after receiving.  If you have questions or concerns regarding the background check please contact Leslie Griffin.
4. Health Form- A completed Health Form must be submitted to Leslie Griffin.


Once you have met all Cabarrus County School requirements you will be notified in writing of approval to student teach/intern in our schools.  Student teachers/interns must provide a copy of the notification to the principal or other office staff when reporting to your school for the first time.  You will not be admitted to the building without it.
