Student Teaching, Internships, and Observations

CREC Schools are proud to help grow and foster the next generation of educators.
We have and will continue to partner with teacher and administrator preparation programs in the following ways:

  • Student Teaching Placements
  • Administrative and Clinical Internships
  • Research Internships
  • Classroom Observations

If you are an institution interested in an affiliation with CREC Magnet Schools or have questinos regarding our placement process, please contact CREC Schools Coordinator of Special Projects, Meredith Oliveira at

To begin the placement process, candidates are asked to review the below handbook, then complete one of the appropriate applications to the right. (These applications are also linked within the handbook.)

IMPORTANT- Governor's Executive Order: Vaccination Requirements for CREC Student Teachers, Observations & Internships, Effective 9/17/21

CREC is committed to protecting our students, employees, and our communities from COVID-19. Toward that goal, and in consideration of guidance released by the State of Connecticut, CREC is implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for its workforce as instructed by Governor Ned Lamont’s Executive Order No.13D “Protection of Public Health and Safety During COVID-19 Pandemic -- Vaccinations Required for State Employees, School Employees and Childcare Facility Staff”. In addition to the executive order, CREC will require that all employees be fully vaccinated, be in the process of becoming fully vaccinated, or seek an exemption and agree to adhere to the weekly testing protocol. Starting September 27, 2021, CREC employees who do not demonstrate proof of full vaccination must submit to weekly COVID-19 testing on an ongoing basis until fully vaccinated, and must provide adequate proof of the test results on a weekly basis.

Additionally, in accordance with Executive Order No.13D, CREC Magnet Schools requires all student teachers, classroom observers and interns be vaccinated, in the process of becoming fully vaccinated, or seek an exemption and agree to adhere to the weekly testing protocol. All students requesting to be placed in a CREC placement will now be required to complete these additional requirements as part of the placement process.
