Clearfield Area School District Tech Dept
Clearfield Area School District Tech Dept was looking for Interns for either this summer, or for the fall semester.

This summer, the middle school will be moving the technology operation to the high school.  The summer duties will include migrating our full network backbone to a different building. This includes networking servers, our core switches, blade servers, etc.  Interns will be running cable where necessary, and imaging computers to upgrade the OS and software.   The summer will also include moving all of our workstation equipment, such as computers, monitors, printers, racks, etc. from the schools that will be closed.

For the fall, interns can expect teacher interactions, network and hardware troubleshooting, and the other various tasks associated with day to day operations of a school district. The network and servers will be in place by then, but server experience is still common during this time, including working in AD, DHCP, and DNS. Imaging computers will also be happening during this time as well.

Interns will have to have all of their clearances for working in a school district. 2/3 of them can be done instantly online, and one takes two weeks for results. Interns will also need to be fingerprinted at a verified location. The interns will have to be board approved before they can begin.

The site for information regarding clearances is below:

No formal application is required by the school district, but we do take resumes and have interviews with the interns. This will be an UNPAID internship.

Interested students should contact Eric Gmerek at
