Student Teacher Early Start Approval - DocuSign 

Note: If the documents below are not linked, the professors have not indicated that it is time for the links to be active.
The document should only be initiated when you and your Cooperating Teacher (CT) have an agreed upon start date. Also, your CT will need to have provided you with the name of the Campus Administrator who will be approving the start date. Once you have all the information and all parties are aware that the document is coming, only then should you initiate it.
