Are there any villages that have teacher housing with 4 plus bedrooms?

It is impossible to know which districts do have larger units, but in general, village settings are more likely to have districts which are obligated through their teacher's union contracted (negotiated agreement) to provide housing for the staff they hire. This means that they either build or lease housing for staff, and although I can't speak for all of them, the ones we have worked for have far more one and two-bedroom apartments than they do three or four bedroom housing units. If the district has villages or hub towns with community-based housing, staff with larger families sometimes work out an arrangement to live "off property", but it would really depend on the district and the community.

Hope this helps,

I teach in Hooper Bay with Lower Yukon School District. The biggest housing option we have (in this specific location) is 3 bedroom apartments. I can tell you that there is a teacher here with 5 kids, and they make it work wonderfully!
