Legal Status of the Student Teacher

"A person assigned to perform student teaching in a student teacher center is entitled to the same protection of law accorded to the supervising teacher and the principal of the school in which the student serves. While serving as a student teacher, a person shall comply with the rules of the school of the board of trustees of the district serving as the student teacher center."
