Teacher Education Program

Documentation to be admitted into TEP will need to be uploaded into LiveText. The documents that should be uploaded are on your dashboard.

Fingerprinting

When the TEP student receives the Fingerprint Clearance/Background Check/Suitability letter from the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE), the letter should be scanned and attached to the proper section of LiveText on the student's dashboard. Also, a hard copy should be submitted to the campus coordinator of Teacher Education.

Failure to comply will result in denial of Request for Field Experience Placement. The Fingerprinting and Background Check should be completed within the first week of taking any education courses.

Liability Insurance

The student should receive a welcome letter from the institution they have purchased their liability insurance with. A copy of this letter should be scanned and attached to the proper section of LiveText on your dashboard. A hard copy should also be submitted to the campus coordinator of Teacher Education.

Please note: The student must have a minimum of one million dollars ($1,000,000) of liability insurance. Listed below are two possible locations for obtaining insurance, however the student may use any insurance company.
