It is NOT too late for you to secure an Alaska job this year. As always, these are posted in our statewide Applitrack Job Bank system. Registration and services for job candidates are always free!

ATP's Fall 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 person.

Or, if you are a university Career Services staff member, contact us to see if we can arrange a visit YOUR campus. Planning is also in process for the 2024-25 school year recruiting cycle that begins in February, and updates to our face-to-face recruiting processes will be coming this fall.

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.
