High Needs School Designation

Can anyone tell me what exactly the "high needs school" designation means in the job bank? I am talking about the red words in parentheses that recently began popping up in the job postings.

Hi,

I think this is intended to mean that the school qualifies under some of the programs for teacher student loan forgiveness. I would not trust that information provided in the form for each listing, as school staff posting the jobs rarely know the actual status - which changes each school year. In red type or not, it's likely to be erroneously entered with the listing. Instead, search the ATP forum under student loan forgiveness for the links to all the schools in Alaska by district and year which qualify.

The good news is that most of rural Alaska DOES qualify for most years. ;-)

Regards,

John
