    • Is an accomplished educator as shown by having performance ratings of Proficient or above on all T-TESS criteria in their most recent evaluations.
    • Has attended a cooperating teacher orientation.

Individuals currently employed by LISD are not required to submit an additional Criminal Background Check form.
