    possible and would like to move to the community early Thank you in advance for your time and input Re Searching for Job Prior to Graduation Posted Sun Nov 29 2015 6 06 am by Johncn My question is whether school districts will hire or make a commitment to you before you have officially graduated contingent upon the graduation Hi Joshua Welcome to the ATP Forum Yes districts will treat you as a viable candidate if you are just wrapping up your pre service undergrad or graduate program The majority of new hires who are coming out of programs each academic year 2015 16 currently are looking for 2016 17 SY jobs Districts will require you to be certified in Alaska prior to starting work of course but they realize that you can t get your institutional recommendation for EED until you have completed your program Therefore if they only hired teachers holding that certificate or degree they would not be able to interview and hire until summer That would not work in Alaska as most districts start hiring in the mid winter January or February for the following fall They try to have the majority of their hiring for the coming August school year done by April or May Hope this helps John Re Searching for Job Prior to Graduation Posted Sun Nov 29 2015 7 19 am by Joshuawalker Thank you so much for the info That makes perfect sense So how about the application for this site or Applitrack Should I just fill out what I can put my references on there etc Then as I get stuff knocked out I can edit the application or is best to wait Re Searching for Job Prior to Graduation Posted Mon Nov 30 2015 5 27 pm by Toni

    might be fun Ideally I would like a learning coach position as I am really tired of the classroom However I would keep the classroom if it meant being able to use a kayak and hike on a regular basis Any suggestions would be most welcome Re Moving from Kuwait Posted Sun Nov 08 2015 7 06 am by Johncn Hi Welcome to the ATP Forum Anywhere in Southeast has access to kayaking and hiking The key is going to be finding the kind of classroom environment you want regular schools like anywhere else Juneau Sitka traditionally organized schools on a small scale hub cities larger towns or multigrade classrooms logging camps remote schools Annette Island is beautiful has strong Tsimshian traditional folkways and is the only Indian reservation community in Alaska Although I am not sure exactly what a nontraditional special education teacher is looking for they do have three schools Not sure how their SpEd staff is divided up but for perspective the high school there has about 86 or so kids in grades 9 12 and so by finding out the number of other teachers on staff you ll get an idea of how they probably organize for instruction It s too large to be a multigrade setup though I m guessing it s more traditional and uses distinct grade levels And although I m sure they have a continuum of services in place I have no clue on whether they do primarily pull out resource room service delivery or push in co teaching and supported inclusive instruction and so on The only way to know would be to talk to the district or the principal You can research the approximate size of Alaska schools by district or town and make some educated guesses using the Alaska
