Hello Educators,

Due to concerns for the COVID-19 virus and the health of you and our school district representatives, we have cancelled the Minnesota and Oregon Alaska Teacher Placement hosted teacher job fairs. At this time, we have not cancelled the Texas job fair. We will stay updated on COVID-19 and make decisions based on the safety and recommendations in May. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for those updates.

Update: We have been forced to cancel the ATP Houston Job Fair today (May 19), but will post updates here if the situation changes for summer job fairs.

I know you are still interested in positions in Alaska and we are still in need of teachers. There are several things you can do.

1) Keep your online application updated. Districts will continue to look through our online applications as they look to fill positions.

2) Apply for jobs you are interested in. Send a quick email to the district after you apply to let them know why you are interested in their district.

3) Watch our Facebook page for virtual job fairs. Our districts will talk about their communities, their job openings and answer your questions. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with districts in a relaxed, informal way.

4) Call or email our office if you need help. We have reduced office hours for phone calls; Monday and Wednesday mornings from 8:00-12:00 Alaska Standard Time, but we will continue to work 8:00-5:00 Monday through Friday to answer emails, answer Facebook messages or call you if you email and need assistance via a phone call.

5) Follow ATP on Facebook for notifications and invitations to Virtual Job Fairs being hosted by individual school districts online.

Stay safe and healthy, Alaska is ready for you with your new teaching adventure!
