Student Intern Information

Thank you for your interest in the Washoe County School District.  This information is supplied as a courtesy to our student interns.

Student Intern Process


All student interns need to be affiliated with a college before applying for internship.


  • Student interns may request a school(s) for internship through their college's office of field experiences.  The match must be confirmed by the lead teacher(s), principal, and HR
  • Students without a request will be matched with lead teachers in the district through HR
  • All student interns must fulfill these three requirements before receiving their school placement(s):
    • Fingerprinting through Washoe County School District School Police Office
    • Proof of liability insurance
    • Attend the School Safety/HR Presentation
  • Attending the School Safety/HR Presentation is a MANDATORY school district requirement for all student interns. This will be held December 11, 2013 at UNR at the WRB (College of Education) Room 2003 from 10-11 am.  ALL STUDENT INTERNS FOR THE SPRING 2014 SEMESTER MUST ATTEND!
  • Student interns must meet with their lead teacher(s) before the internship begins
  • Students must fill out the "College Student Internship Application" provided by their college.  Bring the form to WCSD HR for a signature and then to WCSD School Police Office for further processing
    • WCSD HR and School Police Offices are located at 425 East Ninth Street, Reno, NV, Building B
  • Student interns are asked to complete an anonymous Exit Survey upon completion of the internship
