Alaska State Equity Plan
Alaska submitted the Equitable Access to Excellent Educators Plan for Alaska on June 1, 2015.
- An excellent teacher is licensed and fully prepared to teach in his/her assigned content area.
Alaska’s plan focuses on increasing the number of experienced teachers and reducing educator turnover in low-income, high-minority, and high-need schools and districts.
It has a three Phase Approach
- Phase 1: Awareness – all educator stakeholders
- Phase 2: Support – twelve identified districts
- Phase 3: Review – continuous improvement
The submitted plan is currently under federal review and EED is awaiting feedback.
