Pearland ISD

Field Experience opportunities are provided for colleges and universities with contract agreements each school year.

Instructors: 

  1. Complete the Field Experience Request Form including a list of student names, content area/grade level, dates/times, cooperating teachers requested, and campuses requested. Please include the title of the course. If there are not specific dates and times planned, include a date range and type “Student will schedule dates/times with cooperating teacher” on form. If you prefer Mrs. Rigdon to select the campus and cooperating teacher, type “HR may Select” on form.
  2. Submit the form to the CPDT office who will send to Pearland ISD. 
  3. Pearland ISD will notify CPDT of application eligibility status, and CPDT will notify professors, who will notify students.
  4. Once approved, Mrs. Rigdon will email professors/instructors, campus principal, cooperating teachers and administrative assistants, a list of students expected on campus, including dates.

Note: UHCL Professors, please submit your request form at least 2 weeks before student’s placement dates start on campus. Due to the high volume of requests, it may take 7-10 days for processing.

Note: Students will forward district approval letters/emails if available to the course instructor.

Students:

  1. Complete the Observers/Field Experience 2021-2022 online application.  Indicate the position preference of Student Observer. Your state background check will be processed.  
  2. Because your UHCL instructor is sending Pearland ISD a list of students seeking field experience for their course, you do not need to send a program letter or complete an observation request form online.
  3. Communicate with your instructor for updates about your status to begin on campus and for placement details. Please do not contact the Human Resource office. Mrs. Rigdon will send all updates directly to your course instructor.

Note: Students will forward district approval letters/emails if available to the course instructor.
