Find more information about Washoe County School District's policies and practices for internships and interviews for current and applying new teachers or interns.
If student interns would like to become substitute teachers in WCSD, they will be fingerprinted twice—once for the state to receive their sub license, and once at our school police office so they can be hired as a district employee.
If a pre-service teacher/intern cannot afford or does not want to be hired as a substitute teacher in WCSD, they must be fingerprinted as a volunteer (no charge to intern). They may student teach in the District, but cannot be left alone with students. For example, if the student intern is teaching in the classroom, and the lead teacher is out for the day, the school will have to hire a substitute to sit in the class while the student intern in teaching.
