Please review the information provided  by Orange County Schools below:


Thank you for considering the Orange County School (OCS) system as the prospective site for your student teaching, internship or pre-service experience. OCS is a small district that can really take time to work and develop young teachers.  We host a plethora of students from a variety of surrounding universities and universities throughout NC and the Nation.

Students must work through the field placement liaison at their college or university regarding potential OCS placements.  Students are not permitted to contact schools or Human Resources directly to request placements.

Any student who wishes to seek a school placement with OCS must submit the following:

Orange County will host an orientation for all Fall student teachers and interns on August 15, 2020 from 9 am to 11 am in the Central Office Board Room (200 East King Street, Hillsborough, N.C. 27278).  All paperwork should be completed and returned before or on that date.   

University supervisors should submit a list of students who wish to be placed in Orange County Schools by June 1, 2020 if possible.  This list should include the following:

  • Student's name
  • Student's contact information: email and summer address
  • Semester place is requested for: Fall, Spring, or Year Long
  • Placement assignment information:  elementary, middle, high, subject area if applicable
  • Any special requests to be considered
  • Any other relevant information that would be helpful in making a placement

Placements will be made before our teachers leave for the summer if possible in order to connect the student teacher with their cooperating teacher as soon as possible.  Please submit all placement requests to Meg Merritt at This email address is being protected from spambots.
