ATP Job Fairs for 2021 Now All Virtual!

Alaska-focused Job Fairs were originally planned as face-to-face events as usual. However, due to the continuing COVID-19 conditions preventing safe in person events, all ATP job fairs are now planned to be online / virtual for 2021.  Larger, multiple district events are planned for March, April and May.  Single-district events will be held as needed, and details provided on both the ATP Forum, and on the ATP Facebook page.

May 5th Update: 

  • Thursday, May 20 - 2 PM to 5 PM Alaska Time: 
    • ATP will be using a new VFairs interface for this virtual job fair event. 
    • Registration: VFairs Registration Form - Even if you've registered for past ATP events!
    • Note:  This job fair is open to candidates that do not need J1 visa sponsorships.

Please note that ATP will not host these Lower 48 Job Fairs in 2021:

  • Anchorage, Alaska - CANCELLED
  • Portland, Oregon - Saturday, April 10, 2021 -  CANCELLED
  • Minneapolis , MN - Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - CANCELLED

District annual ATP Services Agreements are sent out in November each year in to HR contacts. Email Toni if you are not sure if your district has renewed its registration. Links to the ATP online Employer Job Fair Registration forms for employers for the 2021 cycle will be sent out after the winter break by ATP staff to HR contacts.

For full details on the 2021 Job Fairs, including the live candidate registration forms, please see the ATP Job Fair page.

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 2020-21 school year.  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 - New!

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.
