    Teachers who have completed the Supervision of Interns course or Clinical Education course are eligible to have an intern.  The co-teaching model is used at ORES.  If you are interested in a block student or intern, please update the TASUS form given twice a year.  Anyone receiving credit for completing a college class activity or expectation must be on an approved list by the district for liability reasons.


    Each teacher will be responsible for maintaining a yearly inventory of equipment and curriculum materials.  A hard copy will be given to administrators at the end of each year.  A complete classroom inventory should be done the first week of school for your records.  An update should be completed and submitted at post- planning.
