Spring 2024 ATP Update!

Alaska schools are now hiring for the 2024-25 school year,  and Alaska Teachers & Personnel staff are busy preparing for the Anchorage Educator Expo on March 1, 2024!  Free Anchorage job fair registration for job seekers is open, and full details are available on our Job Fairs page. The Teacher Recruitment & Retention Convening (TRRC) meetings are also scheduled for February 29 - March 1, and registration for that is open to district staff and organizations only.

As the days get longer, we are once again visiting Lower 48 job fairs and college campuses to help candidates connect with the Alaska districts that have jobs.  As of January 25, 2024, districts have over 375 open teacher and school administration jobs for the school year starting in August. Many more positions are being posted daily, so check back often!

ATP's Spring campus visits are currently in process in the Lower 48 states, so if you are curious about working  & living in Alaska, check our schedule below for a chance to learn more, and talk to educators about the opportunities in our five very different regions in person.

As always, open jobs for over 54 Alaska school districts and other education-related employers are updated daily on our statewide Applitrack Job Bank system. Registration and all services for job candidates are, also as always, 100% free!

Ever Thought About Substitute Teaching in Alaska? - Adventure Calls!

If you are a retired teacher, between teaching jobs, or just finishing your teacher certification program, and are flexible with your plans, Alaska now keeps a list of substitute teachers available on short notice for the 2022-23 school year and beyond.  Unexpected openings happen every school year due to teacher illnesses, pregnancies, family emergencies and so on.  ATP tries to help by keeping a ready list of substitutes separate from the normal Applitrack job bank.

Some positions are Short-term Substitute (STS) positions for just a few weeks, while others are Long-term Substitute (LTS) positions that might be a month or a semester in length. This is not only a great way to keep your teaching skills sharp, or practice newly acquired skills, but it's also a great way to see some of the most unique villages left in North America while getting paid, and making yourself known to district leadership staff. Substitutes often earn the support of a thankful school district, and get called back regularly for temporary duty.

If you are interested in being considered, this form gets you set up and "on the list"!  Questions? Contact Toni at

ATP Substitute List Registration - Flexible? This supplements your ATP Applitrack File!

Don't forget to make sure your ATP Applitrack is active and updated on our site, as ATP wants districts to be able to quickly reference your resume and supporting documentation.  Districts will contact Substitute List candidates directly.

Student Teaching in Alaska? - The Experience of a Lifetime!

If you are finishing your pre-service teacher preparation or certification program, but still have to complete your internship, practice teaching or student teaching, you may want to consider doing so in Alaska.  

You can use the ATP website to learn about the very different regions of Alaska, and about living and working here.  Alaska rural school districts are especially interested in hosting student teachers in their schools, and are willing to work with your university to collaborate on innovate supervision arrangements.  In fact, many districts offer housing assistance, travel arrangements from your location to their communities, and sometimes even a small cost of living stipend.
