Watch Those Listings...

This is the new version of the Alaska Teacher Placement (ATP) forum for teachers, education majors, and school administrators to discuss working and living in the state of Alaska. Those considering an Alaskan job, or considering a new Alaskan education job ask questions, and those with information and/or opinions provide answers. Although many users are teacher or principal candidates from the Lower 48, a large number of current and former school district HR and school administrators subscribe.

Hey gang,

Just a quick note that about 100 jobs were posted this week between rural Alaska districts and those on the road system. Just on the ATP Applitrack side (not including the Big Five) there were 15 new jobs posted Tuesday, 16 on Wednesday and 15 on Friday. We are beginning to enter the real peak of job posting activity, so it pays to keep an eagle eye daily on the ATP Job Bank postings here:

It also is a good idea to search by position category rather than location, as the definition of "regions" varies somewhat, and you may miss great jobs. I'd start with "All Locations" and work through them.


Due to some structures imposed by the defaults on the Applitrack system, some of the categories are a little wonky, too, like Preschool / ECE jobs can be either "Elementary Teaching", or "Student Support", depending on the district. Special Education jobs are typically under "Student Support Services".

Many districts do NOT have their non-tenured staff contracts back, so the time between now and the Anchorage Job Fair will see a huge number of jobs posted. With that said, it's a big mistake to pass up a job offer or interview now in hopes of something "ideal" coming up later. Lots of people have passed on jobs early only to regret it later. If you find a good job, and get an offer....take the offer. Just saying. :D
