District Intern Program

In collaboration with its consortium schools and districts, Fortune School of Education develops strong teachers through a district intern program. Course instruction begins with 170 hours of Pre-Service coursework, a requirement to be accepted into the District Intern Program. District interns participate in one- or two-year preparation programs.


During this time, district interns hold a District Intern Credential. This credential allows them to be full-time teachers of record while participating in courses that include effective teaching strategies and techniques based on current research, best teaching practices, and field experiences that provide a breadth of professional development experiences.


District interns are grouped in cohorts and supported in their training by program leadership, instructors, field supervisors, on-site mentors, and site administrators.


Interns participate in one of the following programs:
