Service forms have been sent to school districts for our 2019 recruiting season. If you are a district and have not received your forms, please contact our office so we can get you signed up before the December 20 deadline to ensure Applicant Tracking and Job posting access without online interruption.
Alaska Teacher Placement is considering a name change: Alaska Teacher and Personnel or Alaska Teacher and School Personnel. There are several reasons as to why we would like to make this change: the word “placement” is confusing to candidates. We receive daily calls and emails from potential candidates requesting to be “placed” in schools. ATP functions as a clearinghouse, or a “job site” for educators and staff, not as an entity that hires; school districts hire those candidates that are the proper fit for the individual positions. We are just beginning the process of looking into this name change and your input is important and welcomed.
Also, our online job bank offers more than just teaching positions. We post all school
related jobs for the state in one place for potential candidates, whether they are
an aide, a teacher, janitor, principal or superintendent.
We are thankful for the guidance and partnerships we have with school districts. Our office is here to serve you and we enjoy hearing from you as we plan our yearly activities to meet your needs regarding school districts that are hosting student teachers during their internship in Alaska, including support for housing and stipends.
If you are a school district and want to host a student teacher, look for the “host a student teacher” link in the ATP monthly email newsletter. For more information on all services, go to our website, or you can follow us on Facebook.
