This includes Omaha and Des Moines proper.

North of 50 Highway in Missouri
This includes the Lee's Summit, Olathe, Overland Park and Blue Springs area.

Out of Bounds - Additional Charge (This cost varies as to the supervisor charge.)

The Educational Leadership office may assist in finding a supervisor in some Missouri
Locations that are outside the above boundaries.

Students who choose to student teach outside the Missouri/In Bounds area MUST
arrange for their own university supervisor. This must be a university supervisor and
the Educational Leadership office must be notified as to the name and contact
information of this supervisor before the student teaching placement begins.


Note: For those students wishing to student teach out of bounds, Northwest Missouri State University will contract with the supervisor and your student account will be billed for this amount. The amount may vary from $300 to $2000+ depending upon the amount the supervisor charges.
