Internships at Natick Public Schools

Natick Public Schools offers internships for students and post graduates interested in seeking valuable work experience in education.  


Internships are unpaid positions providing education students with practical experience. We offer internships to students for academic credit.  Interns may intern during the school year and also in the summer. 


Participating interns gain on-the-job training that integrates education, career development and public service, while Natick Public Schools benefits from the contributions of creative and innovative students. Internships allow students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in a professional setting while still in school. Internships offer carefully planned and monitored work experience with the goal being to gain additional knowledge from on the job exposure. 


  • All students must explore the possibility of earning academic credit through their colleges and/or universities. Students or their advisor will align them with a mentor.
  • The college and/or university then emails s a contract/agreement to Rose McDermott in the Superintendent's office for approval. The contract must be reviewed, approved and signed by the Superintendent. Principals/teachers/staff may not sign contracts or placement requests. 
  • The intern applies for a Pre-Practicum Unpaid Internship through our Careers portal.
  • If the contract/agreement is approved, the Superintendent’s office will initiate the onboarding process via Unified Talent, our human resources software .  The intern will receive an email with their Natick Public Schools email information.  Once they log into their Natick email, they will see an email from Natick Public Schools regarding a checklist being assigned to them.  The intern then follows the instructions in the email to log into Unified Talent and will see the list of documents that need to be completed. (CORI, Fingerprinting, Waiver) as well as annual training.
  • Once the intern has completed their assigned documents and tasks, they will receive an email from either the mentor or the intern liaison at the school building, confirming their start date.
