Alaska District Recruitment Strategies Survey


Your participation in identifying Alaska District Recruitment Strategies is essential for developing a Statewide recruitment strategy. The Alaska Department of Education & Early Development contracted with Educating for Leadership to identify strategies school districts use to recruit teachers. 


As an appreciation for completing the survey, each district will receive a $100 Amazon card. Please leave your name and district. The card is yours to do with as you wish.


There are three ways you can provide your input.

Please respond to the following questions.


1) What tools or activities does the District use to get the word out about open positions? 

Examples include attending in and out-of-state Alaska Job fairs and advertising available positions.

Do you tap into established relationships with teacher prep programs at other universities?

2)  What does the District do to encourage new employees to work there?

Examples include providing or improving housing options, formal or informal relationships with teacher preparation programs, opportunities for career advancement, and induction and mentoring programs.


3)  What services should the State or other agencies/partners provide to help you fill positions in the District?

Such as ATP or another agency dedicated to recruitment?
