District Guidelines

  • Student Observing


    Due to the ever-increasing number of requests, we will only place individuals doing observations leading directly to student teaching the following semester. We will not accept applications for student observers from junior colleges or alternative programs. LISD does not honor requests to observe during summer school.

    Requests: Colleges/Universities and program personnel should submit requests for student observation placements to:

    LISD Employee Services Department
    Attn: Dr. Sharon Heier
    1565 W Main Street
    Lewisville, TX 75067

    Heiers@lisd.net and Mendozat@lisd.net


    Please adhere to the timelines listed on the Program Time Lines page.


    District Application and Criminal Background Check: Each student observer requesting placement must complete and submit a District Criminal Background Check together with a District application prior to a request for placement being made. All requests for placements must be in writing and approved by a program supervisor or coordinator prior to submission.


    Lewisville ISD Employees Seeking Placements


    Lewisville ISD is committed to supporting its employees in their efforts to grow and advance. To this end, every effort will be made to accommodate requests for placements made by LISD staff members, when those requests fall within the guidelines previously detailed. In addition, it should be noted that the following practices apply to LISD employees seeking assignments in the district:

    1. LISD employees requesting student teacher and/or student observer placements will be assigned at a campus other than their current work site.
    2. Employees of LISD, in student teacher and/or student observer placements, are expected to adhere to a normal work schedule, performing their duties and responsibilities in accordance with their job assignments.
    3. Student teachers and/or student observers employed by the district will not be "released" to fulfill program requirements. It will be incumbent upon the student teacher and/or student observer to arrange personal time, outside of the regular work day, to complete placement requirements.
    4. LISD does not place student teachers in paid assignments. Teaching internships are not available in the district.
