Anchorage School District years of transfer acceptance

Good Afternoon ATP,

I was wondering if you could tell me how many years of service Anchorage School District will transfer with teachers who have a masters degree? I could not find it anywhere on their website.

Respectfully,
Alicia

Hello,

Most districts in Alaska post their "Negotiated Agreement" (union contract) somewhere on their website, and it can typically be downloaded as a PDF. The placement of teachers on a step / lane "salary schedule" is specific to each district, but there are some limits in state statute...not minimums, but maximums that are explained on the main ATP website with links to the references. Hope that makes sense. ;-)

In Anchorage School District's case, the Negotiated Agreement is a PDF that has the salary schedule included here:

ASD Negotiated Agreement (2018-21 SY)
https://www.asdk12.org/cms/lib/AK02207157/Centricity/Domain/1201/ASD%20AEA%202018-2021%20NEGOTIATED%20AGREEMENT%203.pdf

On page 11 of that document, it says this:

This seems to indicate a maximum of eight years for a candidate with a Master's Degree for the 2020-21 SY, but I would recommend you ask the district about the new (2021 and onward) salary schedule if you get a follow up interview. There is an additional stipend for National Certification, apparently, if that is something a teacher has prior to hire.

Hope this helps,

John
