Under legislation enacted by the 1997 Indiana General Assembly, school systems throughout the state of Indiana are requiring a Limited Criminal History for all employees. Many school corporations consider student teachers as nonpaid employees because of their daily and continuing contacts with students. Due to this role within the school system, student teachers will be required by the school system in which they are contracted to present the original copy of the results of the Limited Criminal History.
Should you have concerns about what may appear on your record, please contact the Office of Teacher Education Services (OTES) immediately. We want to avoid any last-minute information that might cancel your placement. Schools may cancel placements at their discretion based on the individual policies of each school system provided the student has a conviction for one or more specific offenses enumerated under Indiana law.
