Fairbanks North Star Virtual Job Fair - Thursday!

This is 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.

Moderators: Johncn, Toni McFadden

FNSBSD is dedicated and committed to recruiting and retaining talented personnel to educate and support all of their students. They also work diligently towards fostering and supporting a healthy, safe, and productive environment that promotes professional and personal growth.

Fairbanks North Star Borough is one of Alaska's most sought after locations, and is in the Interior region. The Borough has Alaska's second largest city (29,000), the third largest borough population (99,000) in the state. Its communities have 37 schools, and serve students from preschool through 12th grade. Although a small city, Fairbanks has a well developed air and road infrastructure, good restaurants, cultural events, is home to the state's main campus of the University of Alaska. The Borough also has both Eielson Air Force Base, and the Army's Fort Wainwright, so there are many military families.

Fairbanks also has great year round outdoors activities, and a young and active population. With easy road connections to Denali National Park, and the ability to visit the nearby Arctic Circle, it attracts adventurers of all kinds, and serves a regional hub for the Bush communities in the Interior. Anchorage is only a six or so hour drive by highway to the south through some of the most beautiful landscapes on the continent.
