Contact Angie Mclain if you have questions.

2. Drug Test - We will discuss the drug test process during the orientation session.

3. Background Check - Student teachers will be emailed a link to the background check system.  This link will expire, it must be completed as soon as possible after receiving it.  Contact Angie McClain if you have questions or concerns regarding the background check.
