  • Alaska Teaching Certificate

    Applicants can be considered for employment prior to receiving an Alaska Teaching Certificate. Although, Alaska law requires that a teacher hold a valid Alaska Teaching Certificate. You will receive a yellow postcard in the mail signifying the acceptance of a complete and valid application. Until a yellow card or valid Alaska Teaching Certificate is received, an applicant cannot sign a contract or be employed as a certified employee (and will garner substitute wages). Teachers, counselors, librarians, administrators, related services providers, and school nurses are all considered certified employees. Please visit the Department of Education and Early Development for more information about acquiring Alaska Certification.
