Alaska Transition to Teaching (AKT2)
The AKT2 program is ending and will
no longer accept applicants
Funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education from 2007-2013, Alaska Transition to Teaching (AKT2) was a partnership between the Alaska Department of Education & Early Development and participating rural districts. AKT2 was an alternative teaching certification program for individuals who had already earned a bachelor’s degree and were interested in becoming secondary teachers in rural Alaska. AKT2’s unique design expedited the process through which candidates completed their teacher preparation and were ready to enter the classroom. Fifty-four participants used the AKT2 program to teach in rural Alaska with approximately forty-three continuing on to earn State Recommendations for Teacher Certification. The program is ending and will no longer accept applicants.
