House Bill 1711 Guidelines

Praxis II:

It is required to attempt the appropriate Praxis II exam the semester prior to student teaching. Refer to the Praxis II exam codes to be sure you are registered for the correct exam. Student teaching placements are not finalized until a score is on file with the School of Education and Child Development.

Fingerprinting:

All students approved for student teaching will be provided information about completing FBI fingerprinting, which is required for a student teaching placement and state teacher certification. Student teaching will not begin until your fingerprinting clearance is accepted and posted to your DESE online profile.  Drury University is longer permitted to send fingerprinting results from the Missouri State Highway Patrol to DESE.

Fees:

Students enrolled in EDUC 476, EDUC 477 or EDUC 478 are assessed a $100 student teaching fee. This fee supports necessary cooperating teacher assignments.

Beginning August 2012 the fee will be $200 for in-area student teaching and $400 for out-of-area student teaching.
