A list of cluster sites are below. To support this work, deep partnerships with schools and higher education institutions are needed.

    All student teaching assignments should be approved by cluster sites.  When needed, an out-of-cluster site request should be sent to  Background checks are required for placements in Saint Paul Public Schools and should be sent to our Human Resources Department prior to the beginning of the placements.
