Student Teaching Assignment Request (STAR) Form
The information you provide on the online form will allow the Office of Field Experience to begin working on a placement for your student teaching semester.
The completion of the STAR form requires approximately 20 minutes. Be sure you have all material prepared in advance of beginning the STAR form. You will be required to identify your PREFERENCE for three districts in which you would like to be placed for student teaching. These districts in most cases will be local districts (Manhattan, Junction City, Riley, Wamego, Rock Creek). However, some of you may wish to request a distant placement (ie. Kansas City, Dodge City, Garden City, Topeka, or some other Kansas school district. Please be aware that at least one of your listed preferences must be a local school district.
The STAR Form Survey is only active certain times during the year. STAR Forms are due September 15 or February 1 – the semester before you plan to student teach.
