You must either arrive with a current, valid certificate from another state, or be enrolled in an approved teacher preparation program in order to be certified.
Approved pre-service programs will require an Institutional Endorsement form.
Teacher certification is handled by states, and most teachers are certified in the state in which they finish their pre-service endorsement program, or where they are working now. As specified above, most teachers certified in another state will need to apply for an Initial / Out-of-State certificate.
But, it at a minimum seems to smooth the path for a one-year certificate while other requirements are met.
Each state has its own hoops to jump through in the form of regulations, statutes, requirements, restrictions, background check procedures, and reciprocity agreements with other states.
Although the Alaska Department of Education makes every attempt to help candidates navigate these requirements, it WILL be different than where you are from!
If the certificate you have is from an Alternative Certification program in another state, you will need a State Recommendation.
This is important, as Initial Out-of-State certificates are non-renewable.Although it is a one-year, certificate, it may be reissued twice for a total of two (2) one-year extensions.It will bear the same certification area as your other state of certification.The term "alternative certification" or "alternative route to certification" usually describes programs that do not have all the components of a traditional, pre-service teacher preparation program.
Please note that Alaska no longer issues "emergency certification", nor does it allow anyone who is not certified to work as a teacher.Start early, keep a positive attitude, and be detail oriented.
