Aleutian East Borough School District---Any advice?!?

Postby ElemEducator » Tue Mar 10, 2015 6:30 am

Good Morning!

I recently accepted a position within the AEBSD and am really ecstatic about this opportunity! Ive already taught in rural Alaska for about 7 months, and this looks like quite the upgrade.

I was wondering if anybody had any specific information in regards to Sand Point. I accepted the 6th grade position there, and the wife and I will be making the move in July.

I'm specifically looking for information that pertains to housing. The teacher housing is reserved for families, so I have been told an apartment will be found for us. Anyone with experience in Sand Point (or the district) have any input on this?

Sand Point looks absolutely beautiful and Im thrilled to have accepted the position. The school has a swimming room AND there are paved roads.....WOW, what a luxury!

Again, any information pertaining to Sand Point would be immensely appreciated!

Good luck to all on the job hunt
