District Background Check

Before a student can begin their clinical teaching, they are required to complete a criminal history check with their placement school district.  This is done in accordance with the Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle D, Chapter 22, subchapter A, section 22.0835.  The full statute can be read here.

Information on each of our partner districts' background checks can be found below.
