Teacher Approval Process Standards
Our participating academic departments and partnering local school districts assume joint responsibility for the nomination of teachers. High school teachers are selected by applying the same standards utilized to approve adjunct faculty instructing on the Purdue Fort Wayne campus. Each course has Teacher Appointment Criteria, and final approval of a teacher is made by the Purdue Fort Wayne academic department representative. Make sure you understand our administrative policies and procedures [PDF] as well.
You must participate in an orientation session prior to teaching if you are approved. Additionally, you will be required to attend an annual professional-development training event or a department meeting.

A stipend and mileage will be provided to you for this training.
