Possible Placement Sites
As a general rule, interns are placed within an approximate 60-mile radius of Stillwater and in the Tulsa area for OSU-Tulsa students. Candidates will be placed in Stillwater Public Schools on a limited basis. The school districts listed below are potential placement sites for Interns. For accreditation purposes, these schools have been designated Urban (U), Suburban (S) and Rural (R) to give candidates diverse experiences across field experiences and clinical practice. These designations are determined by a combination of socio-economic make-up, proximity to larger cities, and district size within the context of our regional service area and the State of Oklahoma.

Placement will be based on the following criteria:
- OSU must have a contractual agreement with the participating school district,
- the principal and the cooperating teacher must be in agreement about the placement,
- the Cooperating Teacher must meet established criteria to work with a candidate, and
- a qualified OSU Supervisor must be available for travel to that site.
Confirmation of Placement
Requests are sent to school districts for placements. After the Professional Education Office receives confirmation of the placement, you will receive a confirmation e-mail followed by a letter. Once we have received confirmation, your assignment is tentative until you complete all pre-clinical practice program requirements.
