What is the School Authorization Form?
The School Authorization Form is designed to facilitate agreements between Relay and your P-12 school so that both parties may best support your development as a teacher. The form also supports state-specific requirements of teacher preparation programs, including requirements regarding mentor teachers.
This form is completed in two parts. First, you complete the Student portion, including your school leader's email address. When you click submit, an email will immediately be sent to your school leader with a link for them to complete their portion. Your school leader then completes information regarding your classroom placement and, where applicable, your mentor or supervising teacher's information.
If you have not yet secured a specific instructional position or do not know who your school leader will be, you'll complete this form once you have a position. This form is not required to be completed until after your first day of employment.
Where can I find the link to my portion of the form?
The School Authorization Form appears on your "My Checklists" page on your admissions account ("Status Page") under "Complete Your Student Tasks" in the Post Admissions checklist.
How do I re-send the link to my school leader?
You have two ways to send the link to your school leader: 1) you can forward the email confirmation you received when you first submitted your form, which contains a copy of the email sent to your leader or 2) you may resubmit the form, which will trigger another email to your school leader.
How do I change the name, school, or contact information for my school leader?
You can use the same link you used to complete the form the first time, found on your checklists page. Click the link to open the form and then delete the existing information, write in your updated information, and resubmit.
Where can I find the full text of the agreement?
While the exact text differs according to your enrollment type and state requirements, you can find the general text of the form here.
