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.


Once the Fingerprint Clearance/Background Check/Suitability letter is received by the student, from the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE), the student is to scan the letter and attach it to the proper section of livetext on your dashboard.

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.

The student should receive a letter of welcome from the institution they have purchased
their liability insurance with. A copy of this letter should be scanned and attach it to the proper section of livetext on your dashboard.

Please note: The student must have a minimum of one million dollars
($1,000,000) of liability insurance. Below are 2 possible locations to get insurance, however you may use any insurance company.

  • Insurance Information (NEA)
  • Insurance Information (AAE)
